    Looks like C. erecta more than anything (at the end of the pods there is still an indication of the hooded flower). C. hunteriana doesn't have leaves so that would be easy to discount. Which is the third species you speak of? You should have both C. leptochila & C. subulata there. At first I thought you'd be too late for C. erecta but looking at my records I have encountered them mostly in mid January so now should be ok. I have only seen them in fields of Xanthorrhoea (?resinosa) however and there don't appear to be many in the Congo.

    While searching for the elusive Cryptostylis hunteriana, we spotted these pods. I am confident in the ID I have chosen as we have been visiting this spot regularly over many years. There are two Cryptostylis species in this area, one in another area but C.hunteriana remains in hiding.

    At Congo we have C. erecta and C. subulata. At Bodalla we have C. leptochila. I have never found C. hunteriana anywhere in the Eurobodalla. I'll just keep searching.
