Author's notes

Perhaps Thelymitra juncifolia but didn't seem that big. So I am not sure. I also have more photos if needed.

This is T. juncifolia. There are only two spotted sun orchids in the local reserves (the other is T. simulata). This is the more common and identified by the finger like glands at the top of the column. With the Thelys a close-up of the column often helps in identification.
