Species in the genus Meryta of plants

Meryta sinclairii - Puka occurs naturally on the Three Kings Islands and the Hen and Chickens Islands where it occurs in greater abundance in the relatively sheltered valleys, where soils are thick and conditions are relatively moist, rather than on the exposed ridge-tops. However, Puka can also grow on cliffs with shallow, stony soils which suggests some tolerance of drought.
