Elevation 800m on a granite outcrop
Resembling a caricature of a flying duck, this distinctive species produces up to five flowers between spring and summer. While not overly common, it is widespread in eastern Australia and Tasmania. It is reliant on a Tulasnella fungus to germinate and deceives wasps into pollinating it.
