Spotted Sun Orchid
The Spotted Sun Orchid (Thelymitra ixioides var. ixioides), also known as the Blue Sun Orchid has dark blue dots on its upper three segments.
The flower is 25mm wide, but needs a sunny day to open. It has a hint of vanilla when smelt - which isn't surprising as vanilla comes from an orchid - Vanilla planifolia.
