one rosette in 3rd photo seems to have 7 leaves - so perhaps D. revolutum?

It could be. It seemed small in comparison to the D. revolutum I have seen. I also saw D. laxum up the hill.

I think it most likely a D. revolutum a bit past its best.

Waltraud, Matt just told me that a guy on the ACT orchid group email (who I know as well) has just discovered Corunastylis at Mt Majura. Another new species. WOW.

I wonder whether it would a bit late for D laxum flowers, even if the specimen shown in first 2 photos have past there best? the rosette in the middle of the 3rd photo appears to have more than 5 leaves which would exclude D laxum but it must not be necessarily the same species shown in the first 2 photos?

Corunastylis: these are exiting news!!! will this be recorded on CNM? which species? 2 new orchids findings on Mt Majura within one week, how wonderful!

Waltraud, D. laxum is still flowering. I saw this colony in flower today, but didn't report it http://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sightings/Details/3376010
