Dactylorhiza saccifera (Brongn.) Sóo, 1962
Common names: Sack-carrying Dactylorhiza [En], Dactylorhiza à large éperon, Orchis à sac [Fr], Langähriges Knabenkraut [De], Δακτυλόριζα η σακκοφόρος [Gr]

Zoodocho Pigi, VERIA ● Greece

Description: Height up to 60 cm. This Dactylorhiza can be easily discriminated by the thick and bending downwards spur and the deeply divided lip.

Biology: Another distinct character is the late flowering time (late June-August, usually one month later than other high mountain growing Dactylorhiza species).

Habitat: Wet meadows of chestnut and beech forests.

Distribution: Eastern Mediterranean species, from Corsica to Eastern Turkey, Syria and Lebanon, including Bulgaria, Albania, Romania and Italy. Abundant in Northern Greece.
