Thanks for pointing me in that direction. They seem to be a very variable plant in colour and some have a darker ring in the centre whereas my spot just has tiny black spots. One ref. says it should have 10 stamens but there is only one in my photo!

Perhaps that one is the stigma?

There seem to be several stamens behind that are hidden so can't be counted.
