Mealy Bundy is similar to Long-leaved Box. It differs in that the buds and fruit are powdered white and the juvenile leaves are silvery (green in Long-leaved Box).

Intermediates between the two species are very common. Mealy Bundy has a scattered distribution. It is moderately common to the south e.g. the southern parts of Strathlea forest, and near Daylesford.
