This is a known location of this threatened orchid, but great to have a record of flowering time and number of plants present in 2012.

User's notes

Historical photo from 28 October 2012, I forgot I even had this record but this orchid was shown to me by Ian Fraser and he pointed out at the time it was a very rare plant and I think it is Diuris aequalis.
