Some sort of miniature iris?

Definitely Patersonia sp. Can you post another photo of the leaves please so we can identify the species?
   5 Feb 2020
Yes, I shall post a picture of the green parts as soon as I see them again.
   5 Feb 2020
Ok. To help you: are the leaves coming mostly off the stem or from the base in a tuft? What colour and diameter is the spathe (bracts just below the flower) and is it hairy’? How wide and long are the leaves? It could be one of four species.

Thank you for those confirmatory questions. I shall endeavour to find answers when next I see the lily? in question.
