Description

Plants growing under Melaleuca uncinata. Flowers are completely underground except for a ring of bracts pushing above the ground and leaf litter under the trees. Tiny flies were observed leaving the flower.

Flowers were gently excavated, bracts eased open. After photos were taken, the bracts were closed, sand and leaf litter repositioned around flower.

Very few of these plants are observed and classed as Threatened Flora (Declared Rare Flora — Extant).

Unfortunately during 1988 a wildfire burnt the area and the orchids have not been relocated at this location.
