The genus Pultenaea Smith, endemic in Australia, is one of the largest genera of Australian legumes. Seventy-five species were recognised by Bentham (1864), and of these, fourteen are recorded from Tasmania. Pultenaea juniperina Labill. is abundant throughout Tasmania, being found in a wide range of habitats at all altitudes between sea-level and 4000 ft. The plant, which forms an erect much branched shrub several feet in height, bears simple pungent, evergreen leaves 1/4 to 1/2 an inch in length, each leaf spreading approximately at a right angle from a short petiole, which is adpressed to the stem. Small stipules are present.
