Growing in gum land habitat. Note small small mosquito like insect on flower. Made me wonder if the autumn rain also stimulates a potential pollinator to develop!

Description

This is a known local of this species on the island. Apparently there is a population of around six individuals. From my brief observations there seemed to be more. The tui were mimicking the kakariki calls and they were fighting each other in a large mature puriri. Photo taken of birds on a large totara.

Not sure of ID. Looks like a Pimelea sp. or a juvenile Coriaria arborea ? (Of which are common). The small seed like pod doesn't look like either of them?

Growing within gumland/shrubland habitat in fully exposed and partially covered clay soil. Immature plants look a lot like a young Shoenus tendo. Small spider webs visible on flowers. To me the small flowers look like a resting fly which could potentially be a pollinator!

Another forest on a mapou. The camouflage of the gecko on this plant is amazing. The ear lines up with a past abrasion to the trunk which ends a line of continuous small holes. The colours also perfectly match the trunk.

Description

Locally common on semi bare to bare clay soil (deep orange/brown) well within areas exposed to salt spray from the prevailing westerly winds. Associated in gumland/scrubland habitat. Associated with with species including but limited to Leptospermum scoparium, Drachophyllum patens, Gahnia spp., Olearia spp. Schoenus tendo and Metrosideros excelsa. It appeared the orchids may have grown up after the last lot of heavy rain. It seemed that even overnight more had appeared.

Bit of chance find. I took a swipe at the soil to see what the soil was like and found a small number of eggs buried beneath soil. Soil surface dominated by bracken, Gahnia and regenerating scrub land species. I presume it is this species as there are none other egg laying lizards in Auckland!
