"Leporella fimbriata", commonly known as "hare orchid" or "fringed hare orchid", is the only species in the flowering plant genus "Leporella" in the orchid family, Orchidaceae and is endemic to the southern Australia mainland. It is related to orchids in the genus "Caladenia" but has an unusual labellum and does not have hairy leaves. Its pollination mechanism is also unusual.
