  1. Russell Best  This is an orchid in bud but can't tell which species until it flowers.

  2. Chris Lindorff  Very likely to be Glossodia major (almost certainly). Hairy, light green leaf (two plants in photo); purple glandular hairs on tepals.

    • Russell Best  I agree on both your suggestions Chris. Michael, it would be good to confirm absolutely when they open.

      • Chris Lindorff  Likely to have flowered weeks ago and possibly withered or in fruit now. I only few plants found in area, this is a good record.
