[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This another of our late blooming orchid, found mostly at higher elevations (above 600 m a.s.l) and typically in the shade of the Maquis. The flower width is about 2 cm. Note the bowl shaped labellum where nectar (note the light reflected) is offered to pollinating insects.
