Description

Local along the banks of the stream. The preferred areas where there was a bit more light without being sunny were badly disturbed by animal trails. It also had a small presence beside a stream under beech along the road in.

Alot of small leaved entities by flower were mostly seen on the larger leaved specimens.

The labellum varied a bit in size and one or two had an amount of white inside but most were a very dark red.

The dorsal sepal was very broad in some cases.

The labellum is covered in side by glandular trichomes which unfortunately do not show in the photographs.

This has been tagged Corybas trilobus "Trotters".
