I would suggest your orchid is Caleana major, Flying Duck Orchid. There is another, 'Small Duck Orchid'
Paracaleana minor, (formerly Caleana minor.) I have not heard of anyone sighting the small duck orchid in the Noosa Shire. Hope this helps..... Joan Heavey, (Noosa Parks Association - Botany Co-leader.)

Thanks heaps for that Joan. Are you interested in being an expert moderator on the Noosa site? You can identify sightings at your own leisure i.e. there is no pressure or minimum commitment etc. Cheers Aaron.
