A new combination, Hebe paludosa, is made for plants first described as Veronica salicifolia var . paludosa and later treated as Hebe salicifolia var . paludosa. H. paludosa is typically a plant o f lowland mesotrophic wetlands and is most abundant in south Westland around and immediately north o f the glaciers district . H. paludosa is readily distinguished from H. salicifolia through its cytology , distinctive diffusely branching habit, brittl e branchlets, yellow-green faintly glaucous-tinge d leaves, conspicuous decurved and twisted acumen, flowers which have a longer corolla tube, acute corolla lobes which usually project forward, and preference for mesotrophic wetland habitats.
