Hi Anita and Mike,

Very interesting!

One important feature in the identification of O. fusca and related species (or ssp.) is the notch or its absence at the base of the labellum. I believe i see it in the lowest flower in the image. Is that case? if so some will not identify this as an O. fusca.

Best regards,
