We have quite a few Parsons Bands Orchids in flower at the moment, but this one stands out through the lack of pink or red. Potentially it is a green form, as referenced on the Retired Aussies website. I have not found reference to this colour anywhere else. So, if you have knowledge of this variation, I am keen to hear from you.
When I took this photograph I was photographing a number of other plants. I only noticed the difference after I loaded it onto the computer. This means I have no idea where to search to find it again. However, I will be on the lookout for another one. The Retired Aussies website suggests it is rare, but it does not appear on the list of rare plants I have from DEPI. My questions are:
1. Is this a subspecies of Eriochilus cucullatus?
2. Is the colour variation specific to a geographic area?
3. It is obviously unusual, but is it a rare plant?
