Pterostylis nutans is a distinctive species because of its drooping flower in which the dorsal (or top) sepal and the petals combine to form a hood around the central column (the fused stamens, style and stigma). The flowers occur singly on a stem arising from a rosette of radical leaves and may be up to 25 cm high.
