Topic: Corybas


  
  Corybas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Corybas is the son of Iasion and the goddess Cybele, who gave his name to the Corybantes (Koribantes), or dancing priests of Phrygia.
The Korybantes were associated with Orpheus, another son of Apollo and a Mousa, founder of the closely related Orphic Mysteries.
Thereupon Cybelê, joining herself to the first Olympus, begat Alcê and called the goddess Cybelê after herself; and Corybas gave the name of Corybantes to all who, in celebrating the rites of his mother, acted like men possessed, and married Thebe, the daughter of Cilix.

 The Orchid Lady's Orchid Encyclopedia - C
The name "Corybas" has no apparent relationship with these orchids and it is unclear why Salisbury chose the name.
Genus Corybas has the distinction of having the most southern orchid species, dienemus (D.L.Jones 1993) which is found on Australia's sub-antarctic island of Macquarie Island where the mean annual temperature range is from one to five degrees Celsius.
Because of botanical laws governing prior to publication, however, Salisbury's name, "Corybas" name must be used and the new name was not accepted as valid.

Of the 100 species of Corybas (Helmet) orchids known in the world (all in the Southern Hemisphere, mainly around the Pacific), 20 species are found in Australia, with 19 of those being endemic.
Although it's a bit early to tell with absolute certainty, this is probably a young Corybas fimbriatus (Fringed Helmet Orchid), though it may be C. pruinosis (Toothed Helmet Orchid).
All Corybas species have a single leaf, usually purple beneath, though our two most likely species are both white, crystalline and watery beneath.

This Corybas trilobus is a forest floor plant.Each orchid has one leaf only,but together they form a dense ground cover.Some Corybas have a strange,almost unpleasant smell (like pooh).
Although one of my first orchid pictures,and not so clear,this one is special,because only one other white Corybas has been found to my knowledge,and that one in the Kahurangi national park near Nelson in the South Island.
Corybas flowers are tiny, only about 1cm tall,and can be tricky to spot,as often only the tips of the tentacles protrude from the leaf litter.

 NZ Orchid Genera - Corybas
Pardonably annoyed by Salisbury's skulduggery, Brown refused to recognise Corybas and went ahead in 1810 and published Corysanthes.
In 1853 J.D. Hooker erected the genus Nematoceras to accommodate the long-sepalled NZ species, but in 1864, realising that related and intermediate forms occurred in Malaysia and Indonesia, he transferred them to Corysanthes.
The majority of the NZ species had already been transferred to Corybas by H.G. Reichenbach in 1871.

And as in the above lines the intellectual earth is represented under the form of a dragon with a beautiful countenance; the sensible earth, which is but the image of the intellectual, may with perfect agreement to this fragment be called an obscure dragon, since obscurity is an apt symbol of a material nature.
Now since Corybas is Protogonus, his two brothers may be considered as Æther and Chaos, whose occult union formed the achytypal egg of thc universe: and Protogonus bursting forth from this egg, and by this means dispersing Æther and Chaos, may be aptly represented under the symbol of Corybas destroying his two brothers.
