    Following on from my earlier thread, I think I can safely assume that, with some kind assistance, I was finally able to see Narrow-lipped Helleborine. I hope people agree? Kevin

    Possible Narrow-lipped Helleborine

    Thanks - I'm not sure I quite understand but I will go with what you are saying - looks like I need to invest in another book - Wild Flower Key. I assume, then, that all my original photos are all Broad-leaved Helleborine? Just to throw a slight curve ball - are you able to tell me if these...

    Possible Narrow-lipped Helleborine

    Can I ask what you mean by that? Why do the last two pictures IMG_5496.JPEG and P1120245.JPG show a very pointed lip - is this something that can occur in Broad-leaved Helleborine as well?

    Wood White?

    Thanks - I've also got confirmation on another site that they are Wood Whites. I am now led to believe the Small White pictures are in fact Green-veined White.

    Possible Narrow-lipped Helleborine

    I found a lot of Helleborine's at Sheepleas yesterday and checked all those in flower for possible Narrow-lipped Helleborine. The majority appeared to be Broad-leaved Helleborine (if not all) but there is this one plant that looks very good for Narrow-lipped Helleborine. It was tricky to get...

    Possible Pugsley's Marsh Orchid

    Thanks all for the input. I have read closely the WildGuides orchids book and taking into consideration the northerly bias of the species and the characteristics laid out in the orchids book I think I will stick to Southern Marsh Orchid - it is the most likely and can see no pictures of mine...

    Possible Pugsley's Marsh Orchid

    I am led to believe reading various websites that there is a possibility of Pugsley's Marsh Orchids at Greywell Moors in Hampshire. I went there on Saturday and certainly saw Southern Marsh Orchid. Reading the various literature etc., I am wondering if these pictures (aad/aaf) are good...
