Identification history

Orchid Calochilus platychilus 6 Dec 2017 CathB

Author's notes

Fresh capsules. Probably C platychilus, although C montanus also in this area. Nearby plant looks different and is probably C montanus (http://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sighting/3386733). No other Calochilus seen in flower this season.
