Clubmoss Everlasting (Ozothamnus selaginoides)  

This species was described in 1853.  

The Clubmoss Everlasting, also known as Table Mountain Daisy Bush, was restricted to the Table Mountain area in the Central Highlands of Tasmania, Australia.  

It was a slender, branching shrub between 0,5 to 1 m tall, the branches were covered with tiny hairs. Its daisy-like flower-heads, consisting of eight to 12 single flowers, appeared in dense clusters at the ends of the branches, they were creamy-yellow.  

The species was not found since 1849 and is believed to be extinct.
