Orchis italica, commonly known as the naked man orchid or the Italian orchid, is a species of orchid native to the Mediterranean. It gets its common name from the lobed lip (labellum) of each flower which mimics the general shape of a naked man. It prefers partial shade and low nutrient soil and flowers in April. It was spotted near Vrinena village, Othrys mountain, Greece.
