Author's notes

I think this might be a Hymenochilus given the soil and grassy habitat it was growing in.

It looks a little damaged, has the bud been grazed? If it has it may be difficult identify this year.

It certainly is missing some bits. And it is a bit unfortunate that the bud is damaged as I would like to have seen it flower.

It adds to the diversity. I have a number of species in my camera from this morning at the other end of the area. I was out with the Parkcare Volunteers.

You will have to show me some time. I have really struggled to find any orchids at Umbagong. I am hoping it might be a little easier in spring if Diuris flower.
