The Antelope Orchid, also known as the Dancing Bee Orchid, is one of the most handsome Spider Orchids of Australia. Its appearance is quite unique, and it does not seem to be closely related to any other species of Spider Orchid. As a result of their largely green flowers, the orchids are remarkably difficult to locate amid the surrounding vegetation, even though they are fairly common and often grow in small groups or clumps.
Antelope Orchids are generally very common and widespread throughout WA south-west of a line from Kalbarri to Israelite Bay, although they appear to be absent from the high-rainfall areas in the lower south-west. While Antelope Orchids grow in a range of different habitats, they are most commonly found in mixed Banksia woodland, Sheoak thickets and various types of Eucalyptus woodland. The main flowering period is from late winter to early spring.
