Australian Journal of Botany
37(1) 19 - 32
The habitats of existing populations of Thelymitra epipactoides in Victoria, Australia, are described according to the physical and biotic environments. The orchid is confined to a range of heathland communities usually near the coast. The species seems to prefer the more open, previously disturbed sites within the community. Following a discussion of the particular habitat requirements of T. epipactoides, some guidelines for the conservation management of the species are outlined.
