  1. Today we found what looks like this taxon on the Borden Golf Course. But on closer inspection the trials were not clubbed and the labellum has a fringe of call. The only other orchids nearby are C. bryceana and another that looks like C. abbreviata (Brown et al,2013). Any ideas?

    • I have not heard of C. macrostylis being found in the Borden area. Can you please send me a photo of your find using the contact page?
