Author's notes

Well over 100 in a patch of Kunzea. Plants are in flower, or at the end of flowering. All plants are growing close to Kunzea or other shrubs, so overgrazing appears to be an issue here (or there are better soil conditions around the shrubs compared to the well eroded surrounding area).
