Author's notes

I think this is M. unifolia rather than parviflora. I managed to convince myself I could see a hint of an apical callus on some flowers. They were fairly common in native pasture dominated by Themeda near the bottom of Myrtle Mtn.

Wrong shaped labellum for M. unifolia which is usually quadrate and not tapered. Not typical M. parviflora either though!
