Abutilon julianae — Recorded on Phillip Island only once, in 1804, and last seen on Norfolk Island about 1912, this was believed extinct until found on Phillip Island when rabbits were nearly exterminated and seedlings appeared.

 

Hibiscus insularis — Endemic to Phillip Island and extremely rare.  In 1978 there were only two small clumps consisting
of a single genetic individual which
had divided by layering.

 

Cormocephalus coynei — Endemic to Phillip Island and nearby, much smaller, Nepean Island, this large centipede eats geckoes and even seabird chicks.

 

Christinus guentheri — This gecko occurs on Lord Howe Island as well as Phillip Island, Nepean Island and offshore rocks around Norfolk Island.
