New location of this rare orchid

Author's notes

Four plants found this time. They are all similarly green and different to clivicola, I think definitely C. cornuta now...

Aaron, I've never been into the Goorooyarroo Reserve, presumably you walk or cycle in from Horse Park Drive.

Hi Tony, that's correct, there's a couple of different informal carpark/access areas to get into the reserve. I have been cycling from near the top (East) end on Horse Park Drive (not far down from the Federal Highway) and then going through a metal gate. But from that access point, these orchids are quite far away, it'd be a pretty big walk. Not so bad on the bike...
