Oh dear, there are a lot more Thelymitra species than there used to be, so I'd rather leave this one till David Jones is back on deck.

It keys to T. media in PlantNet, which it obviously is not. In VicFlora it keys (I think) to T. improcera, which according to the big orchid book is a Victorian endemic. The nearest record in ALA is near Gipsy Point in Vic. I also think David should look at this one.
