Key to Tasmanian Dicots

Pentachondra pumila (Ericaceae) 2:429

Pentachondra pumila is a common alpine plant. It forms mats that are often covered in small white flowers and red fruit. It is sometimes confused with Cyathodes dealbata, which has a similar habit. However the undersides of the leaves of Cyathodes have obvious white stripes, whereas those of Pentachondra are green.
