Description

Long tailed bat (Chalinolobus tuberculata) recording in a cave in Windy Canyon - recorded using DoC AR4 Acoustic Recorder.

In spectrograms (see above) of search phase calls, individual pulses are “J” shaped, with frequencies sweeping down from 80 to 35 kHz. The maximum power in pulses is between 35 and 40 kHz. The Pulse Repetition Rate is much slower (4-10 per sec.) and the Pulse Lengths are longer (20–40 milliseconds) than in short-tailed bats.

Poroporo, what I suppose could be called Solanum aviculare var. albiflorum. Growing above stream in small area unable to be reached by cattle. Under story of natural area consisting of amazing semi coastal podocarp broadleaf forest (dispersed with amazing kowhai), which has been completely browsed. Single plant noted. Amazing white flowers. Very healthy looking plant. As far as I am aware one of the first observations in the Ecological District.

Under constant threat from Asparagus scandens. Hopefully I can return to collect some fruit.

Photos updated 12/12/18 to show flowers.

Growing on track edge in gumland/swampy area. Within approx 0-10m of observations http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/4734670, http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/4734669 and approx 500m from http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/4734667. I chose to walk the track hoping to find this species in this locality. One flower just open enough to get an ID. First open flower on stem. Observed other flowers emerging also. First time I have observed this species. Amazing colour which seemed to change from blue to purple in the different light. Interesting that the pattern on the petals and sepals extended onto the column arms.

This group of specimens really caught my eye. As the general area was mainly dominated by T. pulchella (that's what I thought it was originally). A closer look at the column makes me think T. pauciflora or T. longiflia. I find it a bit confusing as the NZNOG website and book have T. x dentata as two different combinations? Either way I think this may be T. x dentata?
