I would not even attempt to make a guess at the genus.

Yep, could be Corybas (sp.), or it could be Cyrtostylis reniformis, which is fairly common.

Thanks guys, yep I think definitely Corybas/Corysanthes sp. and definitely not C. reniformis which I know well from the ones in Canberra.

Hmm, I hardly ever see Corybas, so I dunno really. I'd be more inclined to ditch the sighting as inconclusive, than go to the trouble of creating Corybas sp. which I can't be positive is right (though I bow to your greater experience with them Aaron).

No worries Jackie. Are Corybas common down this way? If the are spotted in Canberra it's a big deal as they're really rare in the ACT, so we tend to retain even the sp. genus level sightings, but I think they are much more common down on the coast. I'm still in ACT mode!

As far as I know they are pretty uncommon on the coast too, but I'm no orchid buff, so I'm not sure really. But not "really rare" I don't think.
