[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Exciting species with deep trilobed lip. Side lobes are much smaller than the central one and completely covered with white to grey hairs. It shows remarkable variability in the shape and color of the speculum. Growing all over Greece, also in FYROM and Asia Minor, but, strangely, it is absent from Crete and Karpathos, while it is common in east Aegean island (Lesbos, Chios and Rhodes. Flowers on March-June*.

*Notes: Plants from North Greece are more slender, flower much later and have more greenish sepal and petal coloration and smaller lip lengths, about 1-1,2 cm.They are now described as Ophrys reinhardiorum.
