DistributionIn the reserve they can be found at the intersection of the car park track and Orchid Road extension or near the northern and southern ends along Courtneys Road.
Similar  SpeciesPterostylis grandiflora has a similar flower but alpina has no brownish coloration and flowers later. Pterostylis curta flowers at the same time but that has a distinctively curved labellum.
