Abstract

Flora and fauna surveys were conducted at the Musselroe Wind Farm property in 2018 and 2019 as part of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery’s ongoing research, collection-building and nature-discovery program. The property was found to have significant ecological and nature conservation values and this survey program increases the number of vouchered taxa known for the area to 1336 primarily from the targeted groups of vascular plants, bryophytes, lichens, butterflies, moths, beetles, freshwater invertebrates, snails and slugs. Many threatened taxa were recorded and several of the taxa, chiefly lichens and invertebrates, are new to science or new records for Tasmania. This survey significantly expands our knowledge of the flora and fauna of the Cape Portland area and serves as a baseline for a property with a mix of farming and environmental conservation management.
