Description

Images showing Leptospermum aff. scoparium (b) (AK 247250; “coastal silver prostrate”) of de Lange et al. (2018) in the foreground and a belt of putative Leptospermum scoparium var. incanum × Leptospermum aff. scoparium (b) (AK 247250; “coastal silver prostrate”) hybrids behind these.

Specimens growing on a iron pan just above coastal cliffs.

I have deliberately obscured this observation for now - as the site is sensitive to human traffic and vandalism.

Description

A further example of putative Leptospermum scoparium var. incanum × Leptospermum aff. scoparium (b) (AK 247250; “coastal silver prostrate”) of de Lange et al. (2018) - one of several seen growing on hardened iron pan on coastal escarpment. Putative hybrid growing with postulated parents; morphologically intermediate with semi-erect to pendulous growth habit; initial branches erect, soon spreading and with age becoming pendulous, branches not rooting with contact on ground. Flower darker pink than those seen on most Leptospermum aff. scoparium (b) but of a colour more consistent with the local race of L. scoparium var. incanum which at this site grows interdigitated with Leptospermum aff. scoparium (b).

Andromonoecious flowers common in these plants.

DNA samples and voucher collected.

I have deliberately obscured this observation for now - as the site is sensitive to human traffic and vandalism.

One of many plants, some with pinkish tinged flowers, others white, all with decumbent, pendent and/or trailing branches (these rooting on contact with the ground), growing syntopically with Leptospermum scoparium var. incanum. Abundant at this location (see also https://inaturalist.nz/observations/33969627).

Same beach cast specimen as https://inaturalist.nz/observations/33772082 - I lacked a GPS so I cannot be 100% certain of the exact location of where I saw it on Te Oneroa-a-Tōhē (Ninety Mile Beach) but it was about half way between the Ngataki access to the Tohe and Te Wakatehaua (The Bluff). Only beach cast bird we saw all day.

No leg bands noted.

Description

Single specimen growing in flooded drain margin on peaty ground with raupo (Typha orientalis). Assumed to be wild. No adults seen nearby but the adjacent property has an extensive palm planting of several species - and that would be well worth checking to see if fruiting adults of this species are present in those plantings.

Same specimen as https://inaturalist.nz/observations/22848521 and https://inaturalist.nz/observations/32751642

Probably the largest specimen of this species I have ever seen. Alas my images are rubbish - those of @tangatawhenua are so much better (https://inaturalist.nz/observations/33679226). Plants with functionally female flowers - stamens rudimentary, not functional.

Growing on sand dunes near Te Werahi Stream.
