Diuris abbreviata

Lemon doubletail orchid

This deciduous terrestrial orchid grows in grassy forests and woodlands. Its yellow flowers are easily seen above the grass when in flower.

Its grass like leaves grow to 35 cm long. The flower stem grows to 45 cm tall with up to 9 30 mm yellow flowers.

This orchid is identified by the twin divergent ridges on the base of the labellum, a flat round labellum mid-lobe and short narrow lateral lobes. No other Diuris has the very short narrow lateral lobes of this species.
