C. fuscata is a more robust plant with athicker green stem, often with more than one flower.

Thanks for the clarification, Tony. There was such a gradient of white to pink in the petals across the site, I wasn't sure how to distinguish pink vs dusky fingers

Colour is not a good guide; C. fuscata can vary from white to deep pink; the backs of the flowers tend to be quite dark (dusky coloured).
