According to the map this is in a backyard in Turner!

Yeah. GPS problems. The camera doesn't talk well with my phone's GPS. Was at a known location as part of the Rare plant survey at Mt Majura.

Yep, clearly gps probs; all spider orchids we found last Sunday occur on the north side of Blue Metal Road.
Matt, I wonder whether your record was from the new population we found? and if so whether someone else registered?
Great to meet you and many thanks for coming!

My record was from the individual flower a few meters away from the population we looked at as a group. I believe Aaron has the coordinates, so I will ask him for them and input those.
