With Amy Hawcroft and Eru Te Huia (DOC). Was on fallen tree trunk within river gorge. When disturbed by jet boat, flew up into trees along top of gorge.
Just a few plants in small gorge to north of DOC shelter/information signs. Spotted by Pat Brownsey.
Amongst the leaves of Tmesipteris elongata.
With yellow inflorescences/flowers and roundish/cordate leaves. Pointed out by Amy Hawcroft.
Just a few stems present on a ponga, on the terrace where the campsite is. Tmesipteris elongata is the predominant Tmesipteris in the area.
Not a great photo, but (in the field) clearly P. laetus rather than P. arboreus.
Not a great photo, but I'm fairly happy that this is Blechnum triangularifolium rather than B. novae-zelandiae (which is also present on the gorge's banks).
