Some observations:

  • peak flowering might have been late Nov/early Dec? The flowers improved from mush, but predominantly non-flowering leaves near sea level to these pretty good ones at about 150m ASL. I did note more tiny corybas leaves in the tussock and under ferns up at 300m ASL.
  • flowers almost complete buried in Dracophyllum needles, and in some cases hidden under their own leaves
  • burgundy flower with yellow in the centre of the labellum
  • evidence of dark stripes on the bottom of the labellum

Tag naming it 'frog'. Not sure what this is. I would have said just a freak, but there were two plants about 7 metres apart, so... Plant 400-600mm tall, thin narrow-channeled leaf, 2 bracts, 4-6 flowers. I thied to find something else like them but no good, apart from one other slightly similar I found in Welling a while back... The substrate was shallow volcanic almost brittle quartz over basalt I think... Any thoughts?@haydenj @bill-nz @joedillon @robbiegraham @ianstgeorge

I came accros this specimen whilst trying to look at something else, the head of the flower had been knocked off in a recent storm and was nearby so i thought i should have a look at what it was, and this flower was revealed, the column does not fit T. longifolia but the colour does, so i have gone with the suggested ID, any thoughts?.. @bill-nz

This entity does not make any sense, is it the suggested sp? The dark line below the column terminus is not as prominent as the Northland sp. but there is a good argument to be had... maybe... Recent clearance has left the area very much changed, lucky to find remnant plants...

Took an hour to find some more to try and validate whether the previous one (https://inaturalist.nz/observations/179251975) was perhaps stunted and others were ready to go, but no, these additional ones seem to be even less developed than the first one was on 4 August! But very interesting - growing straight out/through the fungi layer under the leaves. Could probably visit again in September at this point.

This area has in the past said to have only contained C. 'Pygmy', I would like to challenge that assumption as this entity shares all of the traits of Corybas 'rimutaka' which is what I believe it be. The internal hairs inside the labellum are in the same density and position, the dorsal sepal in profile is a match and the small size is also alike. Some feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. @jeremy_rolfe @memopop
