I guess you win the prize! I saw quite a few 2-flowered plants yesterday in Aranda Bushand and Mt Painter. I don't recall seeing so many last year.

Good one Cath. No, the prize is absolutely up for grabs... I have been stretched for any time lately and didn't expect to get over to Mt Majura to have a look, but had a tiny bit of unexpected time today and thought I'd take a quick stroll where I thought they would be. I couldn't find a lot of them, so I would still say they definitely aren't common at Majura. So we absolutely need to know about other/more colonies and also any Corunastylis plants that anyone can find. Either of the above will win the prize!

How good is the bloody timeline feature which has just automatically linked up the leaves that Peter san found against the now in full flower plant! http://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Timeline/3374859
Mythbusters!

Yes, it's brilliant! I use it all the time to compare what happens from year to year. With time, we should be able to use it to see how plants (and animals) are responding to weather signals and to the changing climate.
Also, the Eriochilus are just coming into flower (late this year!), so there are probably more to come.
