Spider Orchids: Caladenia Orchids of Australia

Gary Backhouse  2020 

This is a comprehensive guide to the 400 species and subspecies of Caladenia orchids and their relatives that occur in Australia, with over 1,300 photographs of wild orchids in their natural habitat. Each entry has the scientific and common name.

The genera Adenochilus, Eriochilus, Leptoceras and Praecoxanthus are first, followed by Caladenia, with the major groups within Caladenia arranged in sequence. Similar species are generally grouped together so they can be readily compared. Each entry has size, colour, features, distribution, habitat, flowering time, similar species and notes, one species per page.
