"Reptilian agenda"....nice. It also looks a bit like rope. Interesting investigation, Jarrett. I'm enjoying this.

Hi Jarrett
Interesting genus. Certainly had me fooled -looks exactly like Aurucaria. Presumably they have weird fruit similar to Podocarpus?

Amazing what plants can do, when left alone on an island for 60 million years, (or so).



Denis. I never saw a Dacrydium with podocarp 'fruit' or any other reproductive organs for that matter. They must be very ephemeral. That seems to often be the case with the podocarp family, which is part of why I've always had trouble getting an instinctive feel for this family in the way that's possible for many others.
