Dactylorhiza - Carpathians, Romania (1 Viewer)

Well-known member
I saw this orchid about a week ago near Rasnov on the edge of the Romanian Carpathians.

I had previous found Heath spotted, Common spotted, Early marsh and Heart flowered marsh. This one struck me as different, but acknowledging that this group is the master of hybridisation.

Could this be D. saccifera? Any thoughts or observations would be most welcome. (the leaves were spotted)
