The flora, avifauna, lichenised mycobiota and vegetation of Dayrell I, northern Kermadec Is, is described based on a four-hour visit made there on 18 May 2011. Dayrell I has a flora and lichenised mycobiota of 80 taxa (one unidentified cyanobacterium, 10 marine algae, 21 lichens, four mosses, four ferns, and 40 flowering plants). Five vegetation associations are described including the first documented record of makatea from the Kermadec Is. The vegetation of Dayrell I was at the time of the visit recovering from the impact of Cyclone Bune which traversed the Kermadecs on 28 March 2011.
