Native orchid key updated

In July 2014, Murray Dawson provided another update to the interactive identification key to native orchids at

This version has extensive additional character scoring, particularly of fruiting material, from Allan Herbarium (CHR) and Auckland War Memorial Museum (AK) herbarium specimens. Many thanks to Kath Stewart and Jenny Dent for helping Murray with this.

Also fixed in this version of the orchid key are broken links to orchid profiles as a result of changes to the New Zealand Plant Conservation Network website.

An app (smartphone) version of the orchid key will become available in the future - watch this space!
