Description

Growing below Kunzea robusta as per last observation. The last time I visited this site was in August 2012 and only the white variant of this species were present. The first photo is what I believe will be the all white flowering plant. They are therefore a later flowering variant than the normal coloured species which were both flowering and fruiting during this visit. I have just added the 2012 visit as another observation. see http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/7055531

Description

Growing below an old and isolated stand of Kunzea robusta. This site has become over grown since my last visit 2 years ago, therefore the orchids were fewer.

Description

Growing with the other 3 species noted earlier. I believe this is an early starting larger flowered P. sp. the leaves present were about 10mm wide and various lengths. Another revisit will be required to prove this species. It seems this site has a microclimate triggering early flowering like the Corybas trilobus agg. noted earlier.

A small colony growing beneath very old Kunzea robusta. This will be part of the group known as C. trilobus agg. I just have to remember to revisit in about three weeks. Seems relatively early flowering to me.

A single specimen found, growing below elderly Kunzea robusta. At this stage I can't find any other records of this species in this reserve, therefore possibly an addition to the list.

Description

Growing in Dysoxylum spectabile dominated forest. This species has declined greatly since my last visit possibly due to the increased desity of the understorey. There is also a small flying insect in the cetre of the 2nd photo which I tried to take a photo of, but light was too poor.

Growing below pines. These are very early flowering forms. I have tried to select some shots showing the hairs present inside the labellum. I would be happy to get any views on these possibly being a species other than C. trilobus... possibly time will tell.

I am happy that this population was P. alobula as the first leaf on the stem is more orbicular than those I have seen on P. trullifolium. The embossing on the basl leaves is also not overly obvious compared to P. trullifolia. Apologies for quality of pix, I only had a phone available...
