Caladenia catenata

(White Fingers)

Closely related to Pink Fingers though typically white-flowered and the only autumn-flowering Caladenia, this orchid was found in amongst a few others. It is deciduous, and produces a very thin, wiry, green, hairy flower stem up to 30cm tall emerging from a single, long, thin leaf (12cm x 4mm). The flower is about 30mm across.
