Odd Leaved Orchid Aporostylis bifolia

Observer

Date

January 16, 2020

Description

Pictures show standard size plant with larger spotted leaf about 3cms long, two flowers and some exceptional plants growing nearby under bogpine. Exceptional because the leaves are 13cm long plain green and do no have the second smaller companion leaf. The card is 8.5cm.
Notably it is not uncommon to find plants with linear plain green leaves [but not of this magnitude] or plants with two obovate odd-sized leaves with purplish blotches. There seems to be two quite separate strains of the plant but the flowers, while variable in lip decorations in both forms, appear to be the same species.

Description

A few late flowering plants still open.
Plants here spindly with 1 - 3 flowers. Leaves narrow, channeled.
Both white and purple flowers represented.
These may be the sterile T x dentata favouring the T pulchella parent as the column looks a little odd. Both T longifolia and T pulchella are present.

Description

These currently are unnamed species which fall within the Thelymitra longifolia aggregate. s.l.
They may be tagged T. 'Whakapapa' or T 'China blue' likely one of each. Notably the petal forms are quite different and so is the size.

Stem, leaves and outside of buds purplish brownish purple. Leaf is thin, arched and anything from flat to vee in cross-section. Flowers are few, often solitary or two, white, occasionally with faint bluish freckles/blush on petals
