Abstract

The orchid genus Rhizanthella is endemic to Australia and comprises two species, R. gardneri, which is known from a number of sites in S. W. Western Australia and R. slateri, which is now known from six confirmed sites in eastern Australia. One of the most remarkable characteristics of the genus is that almost the entire life cycle is spent underground.
