[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lesser Butterfly-orchids are not to be confused with the Greater Butterfly-orchid, which are about the same size. Lesser Butterfly-orchids are distinguished by their two shining green basal leaves, especially of the hill form, which are shorter and broader. There are usually around 25 white flowers tinged with yellow-green in a slim flower spike. The upper sepal and petals form a loose triangular hood above the pollinia, which lie parallel and close together, obscuring the opening into the spur, which is long and almost straight. The flowers are night-scented, but the chemical components of the scent are different to those of Greater Butterfly-orchid and attract different pollinators.

Megízzasztott mig megtudttam határozni e gyönyörű orchidea magyar nevét(Kétlevelű sarkvirág).Szerencsére annyira szép tiszta,és színhelyes a kép,hogy bármely növényhatározóba megállná a helyét.Gratulálok
