Rhizanthella speciosa

Craig Allen, a journalist with the ABC in Canberra interviewed me recently about the underground orchid find.

Craig's article has a very nice photo of Dr Mark Clements who did all the work on the orchid and finally identified it as a new species. I would like to thank Skye Moore (an ecologist) for telling me what it was when I found it. I remember Skye was very excited and knew who in the scientific community to approach. Thanks Skye
