Author's notes

Update - added images of flowers on Dec 24 - sighting 4086360. 4 x plants at this location with flowers in different stages of bud. All flowering stems erect - so looking at past sightings for this species in Namadgi NP - I presume these are G. entomogama? Will update sighting with flowers open in a week or so. Glen
