[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of our rarest orchids, known from just a couple of sites.
This particular one is from the northern Golan Heights. The picture shows quite clearly the very long spur, quite often not seen separately because of the densely packed flowers in the inflorescence.
The flowers are green, not colorful, because they are pollinated by nocturnal insects.

Hi Ishi, this incredible beautiful Orchids, at first looks like a Mish Mash, but lately you start to appreciate is remarkable beauty! Very well done indeed!

Hi Ishi,
that's the most interesting orchid I have ever seen.
The flowers look like little green ghosts with red eyes ;-) Every flower has a face, it's lovely.
I also like the nice bright BG.
Excellent shot, thank you so much

Alors merci, Ishi, pour cette découverte, pour les détails et les teintes si naturelles.

I'm happy 2 c that it is still blooming, perhaps we will go there with the Rotem excursion, dash Ori
