Significant sighting

10 Apr 2017

There are very few records of this greenhood orchid and its status is uncertain

Author's notes

ID was made by Mark Clements from a specimen. Habitat was waterlogged soil under dark, dense Leptospermum grandifolium scrub, with no groundcover to speak of. Location is not exact, but close.

Great find.

Not as great as we'd hoped: we were thinking we had P. oreophila, from the habitat. Should have realised the tongue wasn't blue though.
