    I have recently found 1 on my bush block in Gnangara. This adds to my list of wild orchids that pop up each year.

    I think I found an Eriochilus dilatatus ssp. multiflorus on the Cape to Cape track near Contos this weekend. Is it normal to find orchids flowering at the end of March?

    Thank you for your site. I have found the common bunny orchid at Augusta today, but have also found a tiny bunny orchid with a stem about 1.5 inches tall with apparently no leaf. Could you suggest an ID for this one please? Regards, Gaye Drady
