Author's notes

There were two sites at which I observed sun orchids at Gossan Hill. This is the lower altitude site. Based on the second photo the plants seemed to lack the broad single leaf emerging alongside the basal stalk that the plants at the higher altitude site showed. Not the best quality photos I'm afraid.

Need a close up of the flower but looks like a T. pauciflora related species.
