This is just a photo of a seedling there were
mature specimens about as well.
Waitewaewae Track. The only two specimens noted.
Waitewaewae Track. These wer common in the site, but all had finished flowering much earlier than my visit with no signs of remaining late flowering.
Waitewaewae Track. An amazing example of the elongated stem to get the seed pod above the Sphagnum.
Waitewaewae Track. I believe these are the suggested species as the ovary is quite robust compared to the more lengthy ovary of Corunastylis nuda.
Waitewaewae Track. Quite range of phenology on show in a close vicinity.
Waitewaewae Track. These are part of the trilobus agg. I have not seen these in flower to have any clue as to which species they may be.
Waitewaewae Track. This orchid is common on the track side. It may be C. hatchii, as I have seen it near here before.
Fields Track. Very low section. Really not sure what sp. this maybe.
Fields Track. Most of the specimens seen had finisehed flowering and were fruiting. This specimen was at the lowest altitude and the only specimen I found still in flower.
Fields Track. Above the hut. This orchid was common and displaying many different colouring's, I have shown some here.
Fields Track. Above the hut. This specimen had very brittle sepals and petals which snapped off when I tried to have a peak at its column. To the best of knowledge, I believe it is T. hatchii. Deeply keeled large leaf as well as column fitting description.
Fields Track. Above the hut toward Table top. This is the entity known as P. subsimilis. Making this the third site this season to be visited.
