Coprosma ernodeoides, 'aiakanene, kukaenene, leponene, nene, punene, pilo, hupilo, endemic. The unisexual flowers and the long, brush-like stigmas of the female flowers are characteristic of wind pollination and are rare features in this family.
Coprosma foliosa, pilo, hupilo, endemic. While this species is normally dioecious, perfect flowers are occasionally produced as may be seen in this photo. Most dioecious species appear to be capable of producing bisexual flowers such as this under certain conditions.
