This is a beautiful little ground orchid, which is quite common, scattered under Eucalyptus forest in south-eastern Australia. It has a single lanceolate leaf about 3 cms long and usually a single flower on a tall slender stem. The alternative common name of Parson-in-the-Pulpit is a picturesque one. If you look at the photograph, you can see that the column stands upright like a little hooded figure, behind the raised paltform of the white base of the labellum. It is easy to see the resemblance to a preacher standing behind his pulpit!
