Clitarchus hookeri

Range & Status

Only found in the Isles of Scilly, the sole sites outside New Zealand.

Regional Distribution

First recorded in the Abbey Gardens, Tresco in 1949. Surprisingly, despite extensive

searching on Tresco, it has not been found outside the Abbey Gardens. In 2001, it was recorded on the adjacent island of St. Mary' s, where there is now a small population in the northern part of the island. Transfer of plant material, as in the original translocation from New Zealand, would be the reason for this new colony.
