Description

This colony is the only one known to us in the far north of the late August/early September flowering taxon in the Nematoceras trilobum aggregate. The colony is quite small and is on a ridge top in mixed broadleaf/podocarp forest. Wild pigs are the biggest threat, with a well worn trail bisecting the colony.
