Plate 468. Rhizanthella Gardneri: Orchidaceae
Since the almost simultaneous discovery of two underground orchids in Australia, the western Rhizanthella gardneri R.S. Rogers and the eastern Rhizanthella slateri Rupp in 1928 and 1931, botanists have pondered the relationship between these elusive and enigmatic species. Here the biological and ecological relationships of the western underground orchid are discussed and new research to uncover the mysterious life histories of these unique Australian plants is described.
