Pomaderris apetala (Rhamnaceae) 1:115

Pomaderris apetala (dogwood) is widespread and abundant tree or large shrub species. It is one of the main components in the canopy of wet sclerophyll forests. It has large leaves, which have irregular margins and irregularly lumpy surface.

It is only easily confused with P. aspera, which has leaves which are not densely covered in hairs on the lower surface. It is also sometimes confused with Asterotrichion discolor, which has very different flowers (with conspicuous petals), and leaves that have palmate venation at their base.
