Muelleria 27: 98 (2009) APNI
Leaves in inflorescences generally spreading to slightly pendent, sometimes angled upwards, elliptic, length:width ratio c. 2–6, mid to dark green above, generally drying mid to dark olive-green and slightly discolourous. Corolla 1–1.8 mm diam., with lobes 0.5–0.8 mm long, greenish-cream adaxially, commonly purple-red abaxially. Ovary 0.4–0.7 mm long, c. equal to corolla-lobes as flowers open. Flowers mid-spring–summer.

For distinguishing this subspecies from Galium gaudichaudii subsp. gaudichaudii based on ovary and corolla lengths it is important to observe flowers just before or at the time of opening because fertilised ovaries soon enlarge (Thompson 2009).
