Dactylorhiza fuchsii x Gymnadenia conopsea
(Bigeneric Hybrid between Common Spotted and Fragrant Orchids)
Photographed by Tony Hughes, Kent
This hybrid is most likely to be found in Southern England where both parents are commonly found, particularly on chalk downland. The leaves are usually lightly spotted and the flowers are nicely scented. The specimen photographed here has a rather broader lip than some, but the strong markings on the lip are typical.
