Author's notes

100's of these beautiful orchids were in all stages of growth, from budding to finishing. Some had their little heart-shaped leaf held above the leaf litter, while others remained hiding beneath the ferns and leaves. The location I have given is far from correct!

Hi Teresa, No need to fudge the location. Once the record is confirmed the location is only visible to plant moderators for orchids. If you do feel like you need to fudge it, might be best not to move it too far, or you might give a misleading impression of the distribution or habitat type the plant needs.
