Unsure of what exactly these round white structures are- observed using a dissecting microscope, in Auckland (apologies for the image quality; had to be cropped to fit within the 500kB limit).
Thanks in advance, if anybody can clarify what they are

You try emailing Dr John Salter (gondwana_josh@yahoo.com) she should be able to tell you.

That's pretty neat, I was told about some natives that have special nodes or sporangi type pollens on their needles as a male flower, and the female part the cone or vice versa...but I wasn't paying much attention tbh, too busy looking at the plants and bugs lol I'd be interested to know if you find out what they are!
