These so called 'ghost' versions of this species were around the place not lots but more than normal IMHO. The back of the flower has 2 less stripes than your standard P. banksii which can be compared to another of my find during this visit.

Description

This is not the true C. rivularis but in fact a close relative and member of the aggregate. This colony has been featured before. The featured flower was the only remaining and not yet completely open. Many of the colony had set seed, great news. The pale coloured callus in the throat is an unusual feature I have not seen before. They are much larger in population than they ever have which makes the long term survival of this colony a bit more hopeful as the site is very much at risk of slipping and being destroyed.

This is a known location for this species. Interestingly this and C. chlorostyla have the same detached mid stem bract. Of note is the difference in the volume of trichomes and the pale glands on the end of the trichomes compared to the crimson ones present on all C. chlorostyla.

Too early to confrim this specimen. Likely P. banksii flower seemed too small to be P. cardiostigma.
