|Photographed in the Adelaide Hills on 14 August 2011.|
We were on a walk led by Dr Bob Bates, SA's expert on all things orchids. At one point he took us off the track and showed us a small colony of
C despectans and boldly stated these were different to the usual form and were a new species that he had found recently.
