Looks like another Caladenia in the previously named Arachnorchis group.

There is no record of Arachnorchis on the south side of blue metal road as far as I know.
Petersan, do you think you can go back in 3-4 weeks when the orchids will be flowering?

Yes Waltraud, I will keep an eye on it if it survives as is in in a very barren and exposed location. I could not find any others around it but will look again in the area.
