Description

What I would call S. chathamica although this juvenile plant looks a lot like my S. tetraptera I have been torturing in a pot for some years. Large S. chathmica present in general area >20 m in height with DBH >50cm. Funnily enough a peer review I had recently noted the size of the 'S. tetraptera' which I dont think is correct! https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/12503961. Either way kowhai does some weird and wonderful things around the Kaipara. Associated with recently identified pa site.

Description

Local in grazed bush remnant. This form seems either to be common around the Kaipara or I just seem to survey areas that are grazed by cattle in which both parent plants are heavily reduced? Either way a very nice fern that I think needs looking at. Specimen collected.
