    Just got back from a trip up to the Border Ranges area of NE NSW and SE QLD. Found quite a few cool things which I will post eventually but here are a couple:
    Sarcochilus eriochilus (syn. S. ceciliae). Often called the southern form of S. ceciliae. Found in Main Range NP on rocks in near full sunlight, very harsh conditions.

    The recently described Sarcochilus niveus (syn. S. falcatus). Often called the "Big White" form of falcatus, differing from falcatus because of its less colourful labellum, later flowering time and larger flower. Springbrook QLD.

    Was the eriochilus growing as an epiphyte?

    No, on a rock amongst leaf litter. Almost a terrestrial come to think of it.
