Plain-Lip Spider-orchid (Caladenia clacigera)

We primarily have Brown Clubbed Spider-orchids on our property, but in October 2017 I photographed this Plain-Lip Spider-orchid.  Among a few straggly bracken stems, there were two Plain-lip Spider-orchids, squat and dark compared to the brightly coloured Brown-Clubbed Spider-orchids with their green combs.

I missed the orchid season last year, so I don’t know if they were there in 2018. Hopefully I see them again this year.

For those who are tracking conditions, they grew in the transition zone of our property between the dam and the bush. The ground there is quite sandy and dry.

Let me know what you think!
