Teucrium corymbosum, commonly known as forest germander, is a perennial herb in the family Lamiaceae, native to Australia and New Guinea.[1][2] The species occurs in south-eastern Australia in forest, dry creeks and cleared areas.[3] It grows to 1.5 metres high and produces white flowers mostly between August and April in the species native range.[3]

The species was formally described in 1810 by botanist Robert Brown in Prodromus Florae Novae Hollandiae.[1] It is listed as rare in Tasmania under the Threatened Species Protection Act 1995.[4]
