Morea and Tallagiera

13 October 2011

In the morning we searched an area around Morea in western Victoria and there were a few interesting orchids about, notably this interesting Caladenia/Arachnorchis tentaculata, which might even be a hybrid with a white spider so because of this we continued to search around the same area in the afternoon. Also of interest was this Sun-orchid (Thelymita sp), a named hybrid between T. ixioides and T. pauciflora, both of which were about.

After the main search some of us went further west to Tallagiera where there were some interesting orchids, including this variegated sun-orchid — at first it looked like the flower had been damaged and wilted but all the flowers looked like this, including the buds that hadn't fully opened.
