Thank you Dr. Pankaj for your comments. Have both species of orchids on my property & both are currently flowering.
From my records over the past few years -
D.ovatum commences flowering in December [buds are sometimes seen even in Nov.]. Flaowering is at its peak in Jan. Flowering wanes from Feb. through April.
D.barbatulum generally flowers from Feb. to March.
There is also a marked difference in the colour & size of the flowers - D.barbatulum being much larger.
Am sending photographs of D.ovatum for comparison in a separate mail. The photographs were taken in Jan. this year. Have not posted them before because for me they are quite routine.
