Shaking Brake Pteris tremula

Description

? In one of several empty beer bottles discarded on low coastal cliff adjacent soft-surface bush path beside urban transit road

Was released from bottle by shaking out the sloppy mud and depositing it, with the sporelings, in a moist patch of shaded leaf litter. Unlikely to survive as ground is very dry. It would probably have developed to some size if left where it was.

Date

May 18, 2019 02:25 PM NZST

Description

At left of soft-surface footpath through regen native forest on coastal cliff top, here with oak leaf litter. Juveniles and adults scattered throughout adjacent cliff.

Seedlings common especially with 20-30cm of the timber edging of the footpath, presumably because it traps leaf litter and hence moisture.
