This specimen was found on a "creek crawl" as part of the surveying of Ithaca Creek, undertaken at the beginning of the Ithaca Intact project, early 2007. Dr Sheldon Navie identified it as Ardisia elliptica Shoebutton Ardisia. It is a problem species in NT and NQ and an emerging weed in SEQ. It is another garden escape.
