97 main entities are included in the NZ Myrtaceae Key (mostly species, but also subspecies, hybrids, and cultivars). Each entity links to a custom profile, created especially for this key.
This key is illustrated with more than 1,600 images and runs using 30 characters and more than 100 character-states.
It was created to assist in reporting myrtle rust occurrences for long-term monitoring and development of management options, but will also be useful to students, researchers, and others in the New Zealand botanical community.
