A third native orchid (not) found on the hill.

Towards the end of November, Dean and Geoff made a visit to the hill and noticed yet again another type of orchid not seen at the Moonambel block before. Dean says there are quite a few dotted around the hill. We have tentatively identified them as Cinnamon Sun orchids, we are not 100% sure as they were mostly closed at the time. Maybe someone can confirm this or correct us. (Frances?)

UPDATE; well thanks to Frances’s expert knowledge (see comments below) it seems that this is an invasive South African weedy orchid. It might be a good thing to have identified it early so we may hopefully get on top of it. Well done to Frances Cincotta. The third native orchid at the Moonambel hill remains to be found.
