On our first collecting day, we set a new elevation record for Te Papa’s new 4WD, with 1100 m on Mount Studholme near Waimate. We smashed that with 1700 m on our last collecting day, on top of Marlborough’s Black Birch Range. The snow-capped Tapuae-o-Uenuku of the Inland Kaikoura Range is the backdrop.
