DescriptionThis large greencomb spider-orchid grows to over 50cm in the reserve, although plants typically have a stem around 40cm. This one has a fairly loose labellum, which you can see wobbling in a breeze, and this helps to tell it apart from the small greencomb.
 It can be found along the road and tracks beside the road in the north and south of the reserve.
