New orchid species recorded for Bushranger Reserve.

Parson’s Bands orchid

On the 15th May two members were out at Bushranger Reserve and found a Parson’s Bands orchid, Eriochilus cucullatus, growing in one of their quadrats in the eastern block.

It is a new sighting for this reserve as it hadn’t been recorded on Pat Murphy’s plant lists. Unfortunately we weren’t the first to find it as part of one of the petals had been partially eaten.
