I think it's Pterostylis nutans. They are starting to flower now. Pterostylis typically have crinkled leaves.

So there are Diplodiums with crinkled leaves. Thanks Matt I learned something new. The bud does look like a pterostylis indeed.

Peter,
Nodding Greenhoods, Pterostylis nutans are recorded at only 2 sites on Mt Majura. Looks like you found a new site! Congratulation :)

Yes definitely P. nutans. Pterostylis leavescan have flat or crinkled margins. Diplodium mostly have flat margins.

I've seen quite a few already this year that have been very stunted and almost flowering on the ground, like this one. I wonder whether its the cold weather...

Peter I'm certain this is a new location for Mt Majura for this species. You bl**dy legend!!!
