Chordospartium stevensonii Cheeseman
Carmichaelia stevensonii, the cord broom or weeping broom, is a species of legume in the family Fabaceae. It is found only in the north east of the South Island of New Zealand. It is threatened by habitat loss.
It was first described by Thomas Cheeseman in 1911 as Chordospartium stevensonii, but was reassigned to the genus, Carmichaelia, by Peter Brian Heenan in 1998.
The IUCN redlist listed it as "Vulnerable" in 1998 due to habitat loss. Assessments under the New Zealand Threat Classification System (NZTCS), declared it to be "At Risk – Declining" (Dec) in 2018.
