Yes there are quite a few of them ( 8 to 12 flowers ) in one whole patch on the ground ( 100 X 20 cm) It was growing just underneath the ferns I spotted. I think you can see one of the flower in one of the photos of the fern.

Lovely Pterostylis! Were there many in the colony? Do you have any shots of the whole plant &/or habitat?
