Isn't it a bit late for D.pardina, Tony? How do you know its not D. semilunulata?
   5 Nov 2015
I wondered myself whether it was D. semilunulata, especially as it is not as heavily marked as D. pardina normally is (although can't see the backs of the petals), but the shape of the labellum side lobes didn't look right for D. semilunulata. D. pardina can flower into November. I'll be interested whether anyone else has views on this one.
