Didymoplexis micradenia previously recorded from many western Pacific islands, Java and Vietnam, was recently discovered in north Queensland and is a new species record for Australia. Morphologically this species is similar to D. pallens Griff., which was, until now, the only known representative of the genus in Australia. Didymoplexis micradenia has a much smaller, pinkish-white flower, a shorter column foot and toothed apical margin of the lip. A description based on Australian material, concurring with the protologue, photographs and a key to Didymoplexis in Australia are provided here.
