I think this is the correct ID as I am pretty sure the scales present are lanceolate.

I am not 100% sure about this species ID. So if anyone has the knowledge feel free let us know what it is. Apologies for no phenology being present, it doesn't help much I'm afraid.

Description

A new site, on private property. This was a large colony spanning a walking track of sorts which is probably why one of the featured specimens has had the dorsal sepal slightly dislodged. This does however allow a good look at the labellum.

Description

These are early blooming in my experience, which follows an unusual season. Most of the specimens were just starting to bolt, with only a dozen or so in flower. Quite difference in the labellum of a couple of the specimens, possibly due to one being more mature than the other?

Just one specimen noted growing within 2 metres of the track. Made identification from the bract which made it quite different from the Genoplesium baueri.

Description

I think that these orchids are G. sesamoides by the size and volume of them, similar to G. cunninghamii, but growing in a introduced pine plantation and generally paler in colour. I would be interested to know if anyone has seen both species growing together...They were up to 1.2metres high and at least 100 specimens present. Apologies for the pics, taken from rubbish phone... I will need to revisit again in late December early January...
