    This bears a close resemblance to the rarer Carousel Orchid which I was lucky enough to find in the Yanchep National Park a year or two ago. Super photo Mik.
    Take care

  • Yes, they are very similar, I found a picture someone else had taken in KP and had named it, but it seemed to fit the description.
