This spider orchid has been split off from the Caladenia speciosa for a couple of years and has been called the Cal. sp 'Island Point'.  It is being described and has a manuscript name of  'swartsiorum'.   When we first saw this orchid it was said to be a coloured variation of Cal speciosa and was noted as such.
