Critter Of The Week - Pimelea actea

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:40 pm on 7 October 2016

Pimelea actea is a tiny, unloved shrubby plant that has a very narrow tolerance range. It can only live in the tiny dune-related swales or ‘slacks’, little depressions behind sand-dunes in the Manawatu area, and the species faces imminent extinction.
