Identification history

Orchid Corunastylis cornuta 5 Apr 2019 CathB

Author's notes

A plant that had fallen over, allowing a view inside the 'upside-down' flowers. The last image has been rotated so that the dorsal sepal is at the top and the lateral sepals at the bottom. The column with its yellow pollinia can be seen inside the dorsal sepal and the top of the labellum with its thickened callus is exposed.
