Author's notes

I thought this plant a little strange for clivicola. The stem seemed quite robust, and the lateral sepals short. I contemplated it being nuda. Image 4 is of a clivicola growing next to it for comparison (although a remarkably small one). If this is a different species to clivicola then I will report as separate sightings. There was 1 strange plant, and I estimate 200 clivicola.

Looking at this again it looks like clivicola but with smaller sepals than usual.
