  1. Chris Lindorff  Hi Andrew. More reliably Thelymitra pauciflora s.l., as I suspect it could be T. peniculata, which has a large number of flowers. T. pauciflora will typically have five or fewer flowers.

  2. Andrew Brown  I'll go with that. The stem is robust and there are more than 5 flowers. The column tip in one of the photos shows the v notch. Thanks Chris, these blue sun orchids have such subtle differences to the inexperienced eye.
