Author's notes

Visit of Matt Mullaney's Majura Maroonhood colony and counted close to 50 plants. Very healthy colony lead by the double headed mutant one.

Yay! You found it! You counted 50?! I will admit that I just had a quick and conservative estimate before heading off again.

Yeah this was also really hard for me to find. Took ages. But yes if you also count all the tiny ones which are mostly just leaves (but with a few buds) around the main colony, there are easily about 50 plants. It's an awesome colony... Also more dense than the P. pedunculata colonies I've seen at BM.
