This species of midge orchid is one of my favourites. I love the extremely long and thin petals that radiate from the lip. Inspecting the plants with macro reveals an ornate pattern. The plants can be easy to miss if you’re not looking for them and bloom at the end of winter. The species grows amongst leaf litter in schlerophyll forest. These plants were found in northern Sydney.
