Confusing Ophrys - Minervois, France

All the attached were taken last week in the Minervois in France. Ophrys were plentiful, mainly lutea and a few scolopax and fuscus.

I found the ealy spider orchid types and associated confusing and attach a few that I would welcome any comments on potential species/subspecies or hybrids.
