User's notes

I think this is the same species as Dusky Fingers but different colour. This flower was found in the 50m radium of Point 80 as part of the Fire and Orchid Survey Citizen Science Project at Black Mountain Peninsula

The colour for this species is very variable - anywhere from white to quite dark pink.
