Image 1 shows the column arms quite clearly, and to me appear to curve gently upwards, the column itself is pale blue and the apex reddish brown. The earlier posting showed the leaf which was quite broad and curved. All these characteristics suggest to me that it could be T. brevifolia. But I'm not certain, so for the moment might leave as Thelymitra sp. Others may have a view.
