Good find Matt. A new orchid species for Tugg Hill on CNM.

I have come to the conclusion they are actually pretty common and widespread throughout Canberra. From my observations, and supported by CNN records, I feel they should occur in any and all suitable habitat. I scouted Tuggeranong Hill by looking at the satellite images on Google. I actually failed to reach my target area, which is more to the west.
Are you aware of they occur in the government records for Tuggeranong Hill?

No. I am only aware of my own explorations of the hill and recent ones by Owen.
