Vernacular names
English: New Holland daisies

Vittadinia is a genus of Australian and New Zealand plants in the aster tribe within the daisy family.[2][3]

The genus Vittadinia is attributed to the French botanist Achille Richard in 1832.[4] He described a species collected in New Zealand as Vittadinia australis, noting that although it had similarities to the genus Aster, there were sufficient differences to distinguish it. Two he considered significant were that Vittadinia has only two rows of involucral bracts and that its anthers are free and bent into a shape resembling a bayonet.[2]

Although species of Vittadinia were described from Hawaii by Asa Gray,[5] and are accepted by some sources,[1] these are now considered to belong to the genus Tetramolopium by the online Flora of the Hawaiian Islands,[6] so that Vittadinia does not occur in Hawaii.
