Pyrorchis nigricans

Fire Orchid

Has been known as Red Beaks and Elephants’ Ears

These orchids were removed from Lyperanthus (Beak Orchids) and placed in the new genus Pyrorchis.
pyr (fire) + orchis (orchid) = Fire Orchid

The common name Beak Orchids no longer applies. Fire Orchids has been selected as the new common name.
