Author's notes

Seen after the completion of Tony Wood's orchid walk. What I assume is D. nigromontana that may have hybridised, or just came out a little funny. It was among some much more heavily marked Diuris. Despite the abundance being 16 - 100, there was only a single plant looking like this.

They can be quite variable in the degree of markings. Some of the flowers we saw yesterday were quite small and stunted, perhaps due to the hot and dry conditions.
