I agree that it will be easier once the flower is open, but I too 
think at this stage that it looks like Onixotis stricta, now 
considered by the taxonomists to belong in  Wurmbea  with the name 
Wurmbea stricta. This plant grows in very wet spots in the wild so if 
that is what it is, be sure you keep it well watered while in growth.

Mine usually start blooming  in February in the Northern hemisphere 
and last for several months so the timing fits as well.
