Olearia phlogopappa (Asteraceae) 2:305
Olearia phlogopappa is a widespread and common shrub of dry forests and subalpine woodlands. It has moderately sized, toothed leaves and heads that are solitary or a few together in the leaf axils. The lower leaf surface is covered in stellate hairs, like its relatives, O. lirata and O. stellulata. These three species seem to intergrade with each other making some forms hard to identify. O. phlogopappa has the smallest  and thickest leaves of these species.
