Ophrys flavomarginata (Renz) H. Baumann & Künkele
Yellow-rimmed Ophrys

Ophrys flavomarginata is an orchid to 30 cm tall. It is found In Cyprus and Israel. It is one of the most common Cypriot orchids found in southern, western and northern parts of the island up to 600 m. It flowers January-March (1-2 months earlier than Ophrys umbilicata).
The populations of Cyprus have always green sepals in contrast with Ophrys umbilicata populations which have mainly pink or white sepals.
