Description

These Cook Strait endemic Melicytus were named Melicytus aff obovatus "Cook strait" by Tony Druce. This species is yet to be botanically described. This tiny remnant is being overtaken by montpellier broom, karo (not native to the region), taupata and coastal flax. I predict with another 2 to 3 years, if nothing is done to stop the competition for light that they will become locally extinct.
