''Thelymitra rubra'', commonly called the salmon sun orchid or pink sun orchid, is a species of orchid endemic to southeastern Australia. It has a single thin, grass-like leaf and up to five salmon pink flowers with broad, toothed arms on the sides of the column. It is similar to ''T. carnea'' but the flowers are larger and the column arms are a different shape.
