Trim beauty



A colony of the beautiful little Trim Greenhood Pterostylis concinna is flowering in a bush block near Drysdale on the Bellarine Peninsula. How do I know it's a Trim and not a Striped (or Striated)? It's got a very distinctive v-notch in the apex of the labellum.

G'day Boobook,
Nice shots of the Trims. Aren't they a great little orchid? I've seen them just a few mm's high in the sandy coastal country and around 20mm tall in the moss beds of gullies.
Regards,
Gouldiae
