Three-toothed orchid

Neotinia tridentata

Description:

Before it was classified in the Orchis genus and now is Neotinea. This orchid is a small but robust-looking plant which grows to around 25cm tall. It has 3-8 near-erect basal leaves with a further few (around 3) smaller leaves clasping the upper part of the stem. The inflorescence is dense and the number of flowers is variable from very few to around 30. The upper sepals and petals are white and have green veining. They form a hood above the lip of the flower. The lip is pale and covered with small red dots. It is deeply lobed and the edges are ragged or 'toothed'.

Habitat:

Plitvice Lakes (Plitvicka-Jezera National Pak), Croatia (June, 2016).
