Like all the Spider Orchids, this one has a central flower with elongated petals
waving out giving a look to that of a spider (hence their name).
These ones were all found along the road near the
Baluk Willam Flora Reserve.
Although there is a sign warning that disturbance may damage protected flora,
its always a concern when such a plant is found essentially unprotected.
There were a few scattered along a few metres, in one spot I was able to capture three in the same photo.
A similar orchid is Arachnorchis phaeoclavia and C. tentaculata, and indeed I'm not 100% about this identification.
