I would like a second opinion on this. Most of the Diuris I see in Namadgi at this time appear more like D. semilunulata having a more rounded dorsal sepal and somewhat rounded labellum side-lobes

I've confirmed semilunulata on the basis of rounded sepals and lobes as Tony mentions above, although it is a dark-ish individual.
