Trim Greenhood Pterostylis (Taurantha) concinna

In 2002 I made it to Langwarrin Flora & Fauna Reserve in late winter and saw a few remnants of these orchids. I made it back a little earlier in 2004 and was pleasantly suprised by their number. At first I found a solitary plant, then a few scattered in close proximity but then I came across a couple of decent colonies (as you can see in the photos below).

They are smaller in flower size and stature to the Nodding Greenhood, are less common but form similar colonies.
