And here is another illustration of where the stigma is, this time on Iris, 
which have flowers similar in shape to Moraea. 
Here, on our own PBS wiki, photographs with annotation by David Pilling 
click on 'Show pollination and flwoer structure details...'

I have looked at Iris flowers up close for decades and not until now have I though to look for the stigma. 
Once you know where to look it is easy but it is not so easy to describe without illustrations.
