Family Orchidaceae

Pterostylis pedunculata
Maroon Hood

I am not sure about the identification of this plant. This photograph was taken in September in the Bola Creek rainforest in the Royal National Park south of Sydney. The plants were growing in a mossy area underneath some bushes that had come up in a small clearing.

Habitat: Fairley & Moore says this species grows in open forest often in dry situations. This plant was found in rainforest.

Flowering: Spring

Distribution: coastal zone from southern Queensland to South Australia, Tasmania
