Description

Capitula of Senecio aff. minimus - a potentially new arrival to New Zealand within the S. minimus complex, differing from S. minimus s.s. by the glaucescent, finely and sparsely hairy, finely serrated leaves, dark maroon-purple glabrous stems, and narrower, attentuated capitula. This race was first noted by Drury (1974), who confused it with Senecio kermadecensis ( a single record of it which he noted from the Poor Knights islands as S. kermadecensis). It is so far confined to Northland where it occurs from about Kaitaia south to the northern Kaipara and Waipu area. It is slowly moving south. I assume it originates from Eastern Australia.
