Nice one HD. I think your mystery Hibbertia might be Hibbertia vestita.

To keep up a bit of a native orchid theme, here is a photo of the world's smallest orchid, Bulbophyllum minutissimum. Each of the pseudobulbs are only a millimetre or two across. Will dig out some more native plant shots and post them here soon.

peace

Another native orchid - and another rather strange one at that. It just floats and rolls about in rainforest leaf litter drawing nutrients from the leaf litter through the tiny hairs on the rhizomes. Cheirostylis sp.

nice one tarenna (Tara?) I wonder if this plant has learned to use scrub turkey's to spread it around. I feel this might be the case.

A much more common native orchid - the nodding greenhood, Pterostylis nutans.

Absolutely - I have witnessed this on a number of occasions. Also Australian logrunners (a rainforest bird), Superb (and much less frequently Albert's) lyrebirds and other litter foraging birds.

Small-leaved Tamarind Diploglottis campbellii

Quite sour, about the same as a Davidson's Plum.

Wow, absolutely loving these posts, shame there aren't more of them.

I'm going to have to make a trip to my place in the bush and photograph some of my Tassie natives to post up here.

Found this tree today, I believe it is native cherry, I ate three of the ripe fruits and not to my liking, sweet for the first moment and then not so nice, the after taste last a while, I have read  you can cook with them, i might try some more anyway when they ripen : )

Also what i believe is a wombat berry that was growing with it, i missed the flowers so am going to wait for the fruit to ripen to confirm that it is that and not G. cymosum which has black fruit and not yellow, G. cymosum you can eat the young shoots, haven't tried them yet but wombat berry is pretty good, you can eat the pith from around the seeds which taste ok but you only get a finger nails worth per fruit, the tubers are great fresh or cooked into stews or soups.

The two are easy to tell apart when flowering ,  the wombat berry has three of the six petels fringed , the petals of G. cymosum are fringe free  : )
