Author's notes

Thanks to John bundock who initially pointed these out to me, are these d.punctatum, the 'blotches' appear quite faint.......

The curved back tepals and lack of prominent blotches suggest D. roseum.

This may be the same plant as 4363590, identified as punctatum. If it's roseum, that is consistent with the occurrence of that species in that part of Tidbinbilla.

The two sightings are of different plants, and different species. If you compare the plants in that sighting with the one in this sighting you can see the difference in the colours and patterning between the two. D. roseum is the most common species in Tidbinbilla/Namadgi, but D. punctatum does occur throughout the range.
