    Yes, I think you’re correct, Jacqui – it’s a Houhere (hoheria angustifolia). I found an excellent resource in the T.E.R.R.A.I.N website that shows the very distinctive difference in the leaves. I wasn’t quite sure what was meant by “marble-like blotches” described in the guide book and misidentified based on other factors.

    The flowering period seems to have been quite short for us and the fruits are now developing, although the “wings” have not yet become “papery”. Consequently there is less butterfly interest in the tree now.

    Of course, the butterfly with caterpillar friend are on a swan plant, not the Hoheria.

    I think it’s probably worth reviewing the contents of the Photos page. It seems to me that uploading of images direct to the forum pages on this site is deliberately restricted. In my experience, this is usually due to space and bandwidth constraints but can also be driven by a need to control content.

    Keep in mind that anyone can join and post in this forum just by registering a valid email address. Any content posted is immediately available to all members. This can lead to the unintended hosting of material of no relevance to members, and I imagine this forum’s moderators are kept busy removing unwelcome content.

    Anyway, while direct uploading of images may not be possible, there is a process (see the photos policy) and it is possible to post links to other websites where your photo is hosted.

    The second test is less successful. Although the link is attached to the image, it does not render. This is probably a site or WordPress policy limitation, at a guess.

    For a third test, instead of linking the image directly, we can try a link to the page where it’s shared.

    Here’s another test, this time of an image from Flickr. The image is in the public domain (no known copyright restrictions) and is authored by Cindy Gustafson

    Just testing

    The “img” tag would seem to be the supported approach. This means the photo must already be uploaded to a website. As a test, this is an attempt to use that process with a photo from this website:
