Gastrodia but not sure if this photo gives enough detail to determine species?

The tall Gastrodias with crowded flowers in the montane regions of the ACT are now considered to be G procera. G sesamoides is thought to occur occasionally around Canberra itself, and is shorter and less robust, with pale, stubby flowers.
