Common name: cretan orchid, Ariadne's orchid
Ophrys cretica ssp Ariadnae is an endemic wild orchid of Cretan flora. There are three subspecies of O. cretica. This morph of O. cretica ssp Ariadnae is quite rare concerning the design on central lobe, I posted the usual morph in WS. It prefers stony places, schrubs and olive groves in some places.
