Diuris chryseopsis (Golden moth) at Majura, ACT - 27 Sep 2014 by TonyWood
Diuris chryseopsis (Golden moth) at Majura, ACT - 27 Sep 2014 by TonyWood

Tony Wood was very knowledgeable of the orchids of the ACT. He was a co-author, along with David Jones (principle author) and Jean Egan, of the book “Field Guide to the Orchids of the Australian Capital Territory”. Tony was the principal photographer for the book too, and it was a well respected and comprehensive authority on local orchids. Tony was with Canberra Nature Map from the beginning, being the fifth person to join and our first category moderator. He helped us to build the wonderful orchid species list with its library of photographs that we now have. He did 3232 identifications for us, was very thorough in doing so, and was generous with his experience and knowledge. He passed away on 31 Oct. 2018. We were very fortunate to have had the benefit of his expertise and we are indebted to him for his assistance and dedication. A tribute to Tony was posted here on 2 Nov 2018: https://canberra.naturemapr.org/announcements/140
