''Dipodium punctatum'', commonly known as the blotched hyacinth-orchid, is a leafless orchid that is a native to eastern and south-eastern continental Australia. In summer it produces a tall flowering stem with up to sixty pale to bright pink flowers with heavy red blotches. A widespread and common species it is often confused with ''D. roseum'' and some authorities regard it as a synonym of ''D. squamatum''.
