Not very spotted, possibly juncifolia? Stems had around 10 flowers.

Apparently there is a T. juncifolius too (in DJ's big book but not NSW Flora or Bishop), that has bigger spots. I notice one of my photos has small spots and one big, but the plants were all growing together and it seems unlikely both species would be growing and flowering together. Awaiting input from David.....
