Help with identification

Just photographed this plant, growing in a nearby wet area. Believe it could be an Orchid but am unable to find any referance to a native orchin search.

    Not an Orchid I am afraid - looks like one of the Ajugas or Bugle, ?Ajuga reptans botanists?

    Hello! I think this is Ajuga reptans, from the dead nettle or mint family. This family frequently has square stems as you can see in your plant. Although the flowers of Orchids are similar to the shape of these in that they have bilateral symmetry and a prominent lower lip, Orchid leaves have parallel veins, unlike the net veined leaves your plant.
