Description The Pink Fingers Orchid is a terrestrial orchid from eastern Australia. As its name suggest the flowers are pink, although some plants bear almost white flowers. The flowers are about 2 cm across, with pink sepals and petals that are broader than some of the other Spider Orchids in the genus. The plant has a single narrow leaf that grows to 15 cm long from the base of the plant. The yellow-tipped labellum is about 1 cm wide and has three lobes and is patterned with red bars across the centre. Paler forms are similar to the Lady Finger Orchid (Caladenia catenata) which does not have a striped labellum.
