This is a tiny little orchid, form South East Australia, that flowers in late summer, early autumn,. It has no leaf when in flower, just a tiny pale pink to white flower, with two conspicuous petals giving rise to it's common name of Parson's Bands. After flowering a shiny ovate leaf is produced, but these are even harder to spot than the flowers.
