Although flowering a bit early it does look like D. semilunulata based on the broad rounded labellum side-lobes.

I was wondering why this is called Late leopard orchid when I haven't seen any others here this year, despite checking several times.

You probably hav'n found many because there are not too many to find after the dry winter. I havn't seen Diuris sulphurea yet which should be starting to flower.
