Skotnicki, Mary; Copson, Geof R; Doube, Jan J; Gadd, L; Selkirk-Bell, J M; Selkirk, Patricia M


Two endemic orchid species, Nematoceras dienemum and N. sulcatum, are known from sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island. Several additional orchid populations on the island are reported and deistogamy is documented in N. dienemum for the first time. The known population sizes, habitats and locations for both orchid species are documented here, and new information on their biology and population ecology is provided.
