Stunted "Scentbark" growing in Pyrete Range.
Bark rough to small branches, thick, furrowed longitudinally, dark grey; branchlets salmon-coloured.
Adult leaves lanceolate, to 15 cm long, 2.5 cm wide, reticulation dense, with numerous oil glands. Inflorescences axillary, unbranched; 7-flowered.
Fruit pedicellate, hemispherical to spherical, valves 3 or 4, slightly exserted.
Not a great photo but I can't see any appressed-hairy raised ribs on the branchlets which discounts A. leprosa.
Habit hardly flexuose but this is doesn't discount A. verniciflua s.s.
Can't be sure from photo alone but I would guess A. verniciflua s.s.
One of two visiting the Camelia sasanqua in my garden. We have two species of Mistletoe in our garden, so I'll keep watch to see if they visit them.
The upperside of the wings are plain white with some black markings. I was unable to get a photo.
Not many insects at our place at the moment.
We have been seeing this bird feeding on the small grapes on the vine on our verandah.
It takes fright easily but the shape, size and black-streaks on the white belly give a positive identification.
It flies off quickly with the slightest disturbance before a photo can be taken.
Dense, prostrate to decumbent shrub to c. 30(–60) cm high; branchlets finely pubescent.
Leaves linear-lanceolate to lanceolate, 3.5–11 mm long, 0.5–1.7 mm wide, with pointed tip (muronate).
