Habitat: Usually mid-shade on moist,alkaline subtrates.Associated principally with woodland of Downy Oak(Quercus pubescens)Rarely short grassland,garrigue and scrub upto 600m

Bonjour Juanit,
Très joli spécimen, injustement oublié par les Treknaturiens... Le flash a peut être un peu applati le relief de la fleur, mais le sujet demeure très beau. J'espère vraiment retourner dans les Pouilles et le Gargano un jour au printemps...
