Author's notes

Pair of midge orchids in seed by the square rocks trail, stem was noticeably thicker than that of the two species i have encountered previously, (Cornuta and clivicola). What species are likely to occur up here??

I think this is Microtis which tends to have quite a thick stem and many flowers that form enlarged seed pods.
