Coastal Maroonhood

Pterostylis oblonga

This little orchid was found fowering in September 2014. I consider it one of the rewards for doing bush generation, as the area where it was growing was overrun with Japanese Hineysuckle and other exotics, until about 3 or 4 years ago.

The flowers found were all less than 2cm long and only about 3 or 4 mm wide.
