Kohekohe

Dysoxylum spectabile


Kohekohe are plentiful in parts of the reserve. They are easily recognised by their large leaves, arranged down the "stem" with the one at the tip being the largest. They can be mistaken for puriri but note how they are paired down the "stem". Puriri are palm shaped in their arrangement. Kohekohe develop buttresses as they age and their trunks support a crusty green lichen which grows in circular shapes with a thin white edge.
