Dendrobium aemulum, known as the Ironbark Orchid or White Feather Orchid is a small orchid found in eastern Australia and in New Caledonia. The habitat is in coastal districts; on rocks, rainforest trees and Ironbark eucalyptus trees. Flowers are attractive and of appeal to orchid growers. These orchids give a pleasant scent. The scent is apparently an attractant to moths who assist in pollination.
Two varieties are recognized:
- Dendrobium aemulum var. aemulum - New South Wales, Queensland, New Caledonia
- Dendrobium aemulum var. callitrophilum (B.Gray & D.L.Jones) Dockrill - Queensland
