Ozothamnus reflexifolius sp. nov. is described from south-eastern Tasmania and is known from only one small, geographically restricted population. It is thought to be closely related to O. lycopodioides Hook.f., O. scutellifolius Hook.f. and a 'presumed extinct' taxon, O. selaginoides Sond. & F.Muell., in having capitula in sessile clusters, conspicuously anauxotelic inflorescences and leaves with non-revolute or recurved margins. It differs from these species in its strongly reflexed adult leaves. A lectotype is designated for O. selaginoides.
