Found as a single specimen, this native, terrestrial herb seen flowering for the first time at Sportsman Creek wildlife refuge today. These orchids generally grow in poorer schlerophyll forests and heath. Although widespread are only recorded at higher altitudes in northern New South Wales ? Pollination is by small, native bees and possibly some beetles and fly.
