Green-winged orchid

Anacamptis morio

Description:

The inflorescence is of various colours, mainly purple but ranging from white, through pink, to deep purple. From 5 to 25 helmet-shaped flowers grow in a loose, linear bunch at the top of the single stalk. A pair of lateral sepals with prominent green, occasionally purple veins extend laterally like "wings", giving the orchid its name. The broad, three lobed, lower petal is pale in the center with dark spots.

Habitat:

Meadows Korenica, Croatia.

Thanks, Jim! they were a bit past their prime, I guess it was late in the season for them but a few still had fresh flowers.
