?Nitella hookeri, identification uncertain.

This is one of the plants we found on the Canterbury Botanical Society field trip exploring from Lake Lyndon carpark over to the northern tarn. The habitats we searched were the stony upper zone, cracked silt zone, a strand of recently exposed charaphtyes, and standing water.

Description from Wikipedia

The Charophyta are a division of green algae, that includes the closest relatives of the embryophyte plants. In some groups, such as conjugating green algae, flagellate cells do not occur. The latter group does engage in sexual reproduction, and motility does not involve flagella, since they are totally lacking. Flagellate cells in the form of sperm are found in stoneworts (Charales) and Coleochaetales.

No range data available.
