North Cape (Otou)

North Cape is located at the northern end of the Northland Peninsula in the North Island of New Zealand. It is the northeastern tip of the Aupouri Peninsula and lies 30 kilometres (19 mi) east and 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) north of Cape Reinga. The name North Cape is sometimes used to refer just to the cape that is known in Māori as Otou and which overlooks Murimotu Island, and sometimes just to the eastern point of Murimotu Island. It is also used to refer to the whole larger headland stretching about five km from Murimotu Island westwards to Kerr Point (Ngatuatata) and including the Surville Cliffs. This wider North Cape, and specifically the Surville Cliffs, is the northernmost point of mainland New Zealand, being about three km further north than Cape Reinga. This article covers the wider North Cape. Statistics New Zealand uses a much larger statistical area called North Cape, extending south to the Houhora Heads in the 2018 New Zealand census. That area is covered by the article on Aupouri Peninsula.

Tyromyces toatoa is a species of poroid fungus found in New Zealand. It was described as a new species by G. H. Cunningham in 1965. The type collections were made by Joan Dingley, who found the fungus in Taupo, Mount Ruapehu, near Whakapapa Stream. She found it fruiting on the bark of dead branches and trunks of Phyllocladus alpinus, at an elevation of 1,000 metres (3,300 ft). The specific epithet toatoa evokes the Māori name of the host plant.
