Author's notes

About 20 + flowering along track behind North Beach, Bawley Point. Guessing that it's D. punctatum.

Difficult to confirm this as I really need to see the flower and labellum in detail to tell the difference betwenn these two hyacinth orchids. Can you upload an enlargement of one flower?

Zooming in on the photo I can see the backward curled petal tips characteristic of D. roseum. I compared it with my shots of roseum and punctatum and it fits the former a lot better. D. roseum can be slightly spotty, as this is.

Thanks, Jackie. I didn't manage to get back to it for another photo.
