[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This representative of oestrifera group has a particularly small lip (6-9mm). It has been recently described from Rhodes (see also the page of Ophrys dodekanensis). Similar Ophrys of oestrifera group, with small lips and relatively early flowering time, can be found in south Greece, in Ionian island till Kerkyra (Corfu), in Aegina island, in Dodecanese islands* (see also the page of Ophrys minutula) and in western coast of Turkey. Some of these may split from the rest as separate species during the forthcoming years. In Rhodes, it is discriminated from the rest members of oestrifera group, due to the small lip length and from Ophrys dodekanensis, due to the later flowering time (mid March - April).

Excellent capture! The light is is just right, and the composition beautiful, showing two views of this lovely Ophrys! The "horns" seem short relative to the labellum in this specimen.

Well done, Anita!
