According to the Encyclopaedia Botanica by Frances Bodkin published by 
Angus and Robertson the common name 'dusty miller' is used to describe...

Centaurea cinerea
Lychnis coronaria
Senecio maritima 
Spyridium bifidum

and growing in my local area in Australia, Spyridium parvifolium.

I think this highlights the danger of relying on common names when 
identifying plants!
