Hi Pascall, finally got around to looking at your web site. Great photos. This orchid might be a dark red form of Caladenia polychroma - C. filifera usually has an all-red, tiny labellum

It could be C. pulchra which is a very similar species but often paler than C, filifera. I think this groups of spider orchids has now become Calonemorchis
