Chiloglottis (includes Simpliglottis; Orchidaceae) 4a:84
Tasmania has seven species of bird orchids (Chiloglottis). These plants are low growing, and have a single pair of opposite leaves, which grow more-or-less flat on the ground. The flowering stem is short (usually only 1-2 cm tall) and bears a single conspicuous flower at the top.
