Author's notes

Update to sighting 3878406 - one week later. 1 plant has disappeared but found two more in bud (pictured here). As noted on sighting 3878406 all flowering stems erect in bud - so thinking maybe G. entomogama? Glen

The taxonomy of Gastrodia is under review, so I think it might be better to leave this as Gastrodia sp. for now.
