This group consists of a number of very similar orchids. They differ mainly in flower size and flowing period. None of them are common.
T. magnifica (Crystal Brook Star) differs from T. stellata by having larger flowers (4-5cm vs 2-4cm) and a flowering period 2-3 weeks earlier. T. jacksonii has even larger flowers (5-6cm) and an even later flowering period around late November to December. T. yorkensis has lighter flowers and a consistent light stripe on each petal and sepal. T. dedmaniarum has very tall plants (up to 50cm) with flowers that tend to have more yellow and less brown patches.
