Coprosma repens (Rubiaceae) not in Student's Flora

Coprosma repens (Mirror Bush) is a common, large woody weed with large, blunt, glossy, opposite leaves. It has tiny pockets at the bases of the secondary veins on the lower leaf surface (domatia). It has separate male and female plants. The female flowers occur in small clusters and have very small corollas, whereas the male flowers occur in more-or-less spherical heads with larger corollas (about 5mm long).
