Descripción

Returning to the issue of what fungus is damaging my Passiflorua edulis (see https://inaturalist.nz/observations/37091536) - these growths were noted yesterday I don't thnk they are same fungus as observed on 30 December 2019 but they seem to have the same impact on the host plant, or perhaps are benefitting from whatever else is causing the leaf yellowing and drop.

Lesions initiated as dark green spotting, the centre of which is soon covered in white hyphae forming more or less ciricular patches up to 5 mm diameter. On initial appearance of the dark green spotting the surrounding tissue becomes chlorotic, and by the time spore tissue is forming the entire leaf has gone yellow and often drops.

Descripción

Corticolous on karamu (Coprosma chathamica). Thallus pinkish when fresh, pseudocyphellate.

Examined by Andrew Marshall who states of this specimen that it 'approaches Pyrenula microcarpa with respect to the pale thallus and very small pyrenocarps (up to ~0.5mm), but differs from that species by the thallus surface which has a pinkish hue and which is pseudocyphellate. The spores measure 17.5-20 microns; lumina very angular and uniseriately arranged in the ascus'.

Occasional on the trunk and canopy branches of ramarama (Lophomyrtus bullata). Thallus reddish.

Not a satisfactory fit but of the New Zealand species as treated in the N.Z. Lichen "Flora" this specimen fits here best.

New Zealand Usnea need a modern revision starting with a DNA based phylogeny to provide a framework on which to map a chemical and morphology assessment.

Descripción

Battered specimen rescued from cat who had retrieved it from parapara (Pisonia brunoniana) tree where it had been gummed up in the ripe fruits. I assume it would die but this bird tolerated being ungummed, and carefully washed and dried. It was then fed a supply of midges and Scolypopa australis, and given water. The following morning this bird was successfully released and despite missing all it's tail feathers it seemed fine. Never dealt with such a delicate bird before, I was convinced it would die. Obviously more resilient than I had thought

Locally common. Parasitic on Coprosma propinqua var. propinqua. I found this population at this location in 2010. Great to see it is still here, although some plants are now covered in Ceroplastes sinensis (see ). When I was a child - (c. 45 years ago) this species was locally common around the eastern shoreline of Aotea, and northern shore of Kawhia on Coprosma propinqua var. propinqua. Over the last 30 years this species has all but vanished from this part of the western Waikato.

= Pectinopitys ferruginea (G.Benn. ex D.Don in Lamb.) C.N.Page

Occasional tree in kahikatea (Dacrycarpus dacrydioides) dominated riparian forest. Some specimens with moderate amounts of fruiting cones present.

Recently moved from Prumnopitys to a new genus Pectinopitys (Page 2019), of which this species is the type. Of course the name is not being accepted in the New Zealand Plant Names Database because the Australian Prumnopitys ladei, also transferred to Pectinopitys by Page (2019), isn't being accepted in Pectinopitys by the Australian Plant Names Index. This is an interesting but irrelevant argument for the New Zealand species (i.e. type of Pectinopitys) for which there is abundant evidence on the basis of cone development, embryology, chemistry, morphology and molecular data which shows that our species is distinct from Prumnopitys. Page (2019) merely completed what Bobrov & Melikyan (2000) started.

Needless to say I am using Pectinopitys for our species.

Heavily infecting all ramarama (Lophomyrtus bullata) in kahikatea (Dacrycarpus dacrydioides) riparian forest remnant. Also noted on Metrosideros diffusa (infestations on that species less severe).

Ramarama plants also drought stressed. Austropuccinia lesions mostly noted as dark pink circular blemishes, uredinospores poorly developed, often grey - I surmise drought has affected / arrested their development?

Scale insect (female). Seems to fit this species but I confess my identification basis is merely looking at pictures on Landcare Research's website - https://www.landcareresearch.co.nz/science/plants-animals-fungi/animals/invertebrates/systematics/scale-insects/image-gallery

Very common on the adaxial leaf surfaces of ramarama (Lophomyrtus bullata).
