Default Northwestern Twayblade

Listera banksiana (caurina) is common in the northwest, but this is a rare three-leaved form.



Native Orchids of the Pacific Northwest and the Canadian Rockies: Two Twayblades, a Coralroot and a Bog Orchid at Lake Elizabeth.

Thanks, Bud. It is quite delicate, but also rather nondescript. Most people would not even see it.

Nice find! You have an uncanny knack for finding rare flora.

Thanks, Tindo. We do a lot of looking and eventually it pays off.

It is, isn't it, Tindo. This is one of the reasons I like macro work. There is a whole world of beauty that passes unnoticed because it's so small.
