Similar species: White Cudweed (Vellereophyton dealbatum) is similar in size and habit. It has white petals, and the flowers are woolly on the outside.
Helichrysum was formerly a large genus. All of the local former members of this genus have now been placed in other genera, and Jersey Cudweed reclassified as a laphangium. Some authorities keep Jersey Cudweed as a Pseudognaphalium.
It is not known whether or not the local Jersey Cudweeds are introduced or native.
