Happy Valley; Stewart Island; Lyall Bay—all coll. H. B. Kirk, no date. Kirk does not seem ever to have recorded any of these occurrences, but Brondsted (1926) has reported the species from Island Bay. Brondsted's material was collected by Th. Mortensen, whom Kirk conducted to various Wellington collecting localities during the former's visit to New Zealand.
