Several specimens noted near the track when entering from the bottom of Wadestown Road.
I am not sure if I have taken good enough photo's for this species to be confirmed. It was growing in the lee of cliff face amongst scree pretty much. There were only a couple of specimens present in the area that I noted. I refrained from suggesting A. solandri as the seed heads seemed to open and spaced compared to that species, any help would be gladly appreciated.
I spotted this moth during the day on the cliff face at Sinclair Head. It was looking worse for wear from predation or weather. I think I have the species correct, and think it is a male of this species. Corrections welcome.
I am not 100% sure about this identification as it appears slightly broader than specimens I am familiar with from the Kapiti area. Please feedback any thoughts. @leonperrie
Late flowering specimens
Past their best these flowers but I have seen this species here before so am confident of the ID.
Recorded from the area in 2004. I believe this ID is correct, am happy to be proven otherwise, first time meeting this species.
This specimen was about 30mm long. I have not seen these large earwigs before, very cool.
Anybodies guess...But growing directly below Dawson Falls, limiting the possibilities a little...
Well past its best these plants could be several species...
These could be several species...
Apologies for the photo quality...
Very uncommon at this site.
These are likely to be P. banksii, but I will endeavour to revisit them next season to confirm.
This is just a photo of a seedling there were
mature specimens about as well.
