Photo by Graeme W. who decided to show how endangered some of our orchids are. This is Bussells Spider Orchid, Caladenia busselliana. It was discovered by Greg Bussell in 1990.
The cage is to protect it from grazing , mainly by rabbits and roos . Like most of our rare orchids - and there are less than a handful of this one left - it requires a summer bur . Unfortunately most of our burns now occur in spring or autum and are not good for most orchids.
The main flower colour is yellow.
