... Diuris, but a good crop of other orchids.
We spent the afternoon of 28 April with our friends Tony and Jean scouring the SW quadrant of Black (nigro) Mountain (montana) for orchids. It not being Spring we, not surprisingly, didn't find the species of Diuris named after this area. The first orchids we found in flower were Diplodium reflexum.
The next goodies were Corysanthes hispida. Many were found, but they were, by and large heading for home and a well earned (permanent) rest. This one was kind enough to strut its stuff.
