local names: –

This species is endemic to mountainous areas of New Zealand’s North Island, where it occurs with three separable subspecies, Wahlenbergia pygmaea ssp. drucei J. A. Petterson, Wahlenbergia pygmaea ssp. pygmaea Colenso and Wahlenbergia pygmaea ssp. tararua J. A. Petterson. [1]

The species appears to be genetically inseparable from Wahlenbergia albomarginata Hook., whose species epithet has priority. [2]

New Zealand plants have wrongly been called Isotoma fluviatilis (R. Br.) F. Muell. ex Benth. which is an Australian endemic.

The same name is applied in Botanical Gardens to the Australian Lobelia pedunculata R. Br. (Pratia pedunculata (R. Br.) Benth), which is then wrongly labeled as coming from New Zealand.
