|Name:||Diplodium striatum||Common Name:||Striped Greenhood|
We first found these orchids in the Brisbane Ranges on a cold day in June
2004, we found 2 new orchids on this day (new to us anyway), and this made
it a very worthwhile trip out for a forest walk.
Since then we have found another site, still in the Brisbane ranges and fortunately not in an area burnt by the recent fires (2006). The initial site is still in a restricted area and we may not be able to check on the orchids survival until next season.
Photographed in the Brisbane Ranges National Park.
