The remaining parts of the flowers look like a strange Diuris pardina, perhaps a hybrid or a different Diuris species; looks like being grazed too.

While markings on the back of the petals is usual these markings are interesting but not because of the marking nor the colour this does look different and maybe a hybrid as the the petal shape and form are not typical. The petal is more narrowly ovate and the stalks appear short. I think it is still D. pardina though.

thanks D. We had discussions in the past about not straight forward looking leopard orchids and one suggestion was hybridisation...
