Author's notes

Despite this sighting only being a single leaf, it's an exciting find because it was found far away from the other main Acianthus colony locations. Will check back to see if it flowers.

We're now not sure if this is an Acianthus leave or possibly Corybas due to the heavy texture on the leaf. Will keep an eye on it.. Hard to ID without a flower. Have changed this back to Unidentified.

I don't think this is Corybas after all...

Looks like a leaf of Acianthus, but need a flower to check which species.
