Author's notes

Based on the length of the lateral sepals, colour of the labellum, width of the flower and smoothness of the stem, I am inclined to call this P. falcata. Was growing among shrubby leptospermum a few meters away from the creek. Flowering plants numbered between 20 and 30. I could not see how many plants had chosen not to flower as I could not see their leaves.
