Tindo? Do you mean AaronAcker? ( I let him know )
That is definitely a 'feed me, Seymour' Orchid!
Very cool

Magnus - do you have little green army men you can put next to it then take a photo?

How big is it, from your picture I believe it is about 1" total height (flower included)?

Wow someone (outside Aust.) who grows Corybas!!!!!
I had a few many years ago.Found them not too dificult if given the right conditions,but eventually disaster struck, and I lost them.
I treated them like jewell orchids ,only a little cooler.
Anyway, thanks for the photo.
