  1. Cathy Powers  The Thelymitra sp looks like Thelymitra megcalyptra

    • Andrew Brown  Thanks Cathy. The species look very similar to me as an armature.

  2. Cathy Powers  Having the Glossodia in the image helps give some idea of the flower size - great photo. A lot of the 'blue' sun orchids can be difficult to ID from photo alone because of the lack of size indication.
