According to the 2017 Census of Vascular plants of the ACT these guys are now Caladenia major.

Yes the name has changed, as has the name of one or two other orchids, although I havn't put the changes through yet on CNM. There may be a few people 'unhappy' about some of the changes.

Yes those name changes...... Anyhow I decided to follow the naming (scientific and common) of the Census (2017 Version) to update our Mts Ainslie / Majura Flora list (which I currently do) - otherwise it will be too messy and even more confusing.
