Hi JayVee could you confirm the last photo includes the same species as the first two photos?
In the last photo, the group of orchids I can only see Diuris sulphurea plants. I think you have recorded two different species.

Hi DerekC
Thank you for picking this up. I have just looked back at some of the photos and I think you are right these are different orchids. The last photo was really to show the habitat. The orchids in the last photo bloomed late Sept - early October while the Leopard Doubletails started appearing in August. I just thought it was a second flush. I will submit a new post with different photos. Thank you once again

Hi JayVee That is perfectly alright. Sorry it took so long for somebody to get to it. You can easily edit these records to make another entry if you were thinking of separating those photos. It can be very interesting with Diuris how one species finishes and another one replaces them almost seamlessly. Same ground, same area just different species. The other issue with Diunis is they do hybridize and that can be fun where two species flowering overlaps or overlaps in some years. It does make a Moderators life more of a challenge though.
