Hi All,

I took this in Scotland early June this year beside a loch, on very boggy ground, there were good numbers of Northern marsh orchid and then I found this brute...it was a very sturdy plant with un-spotted leaves, but looked totally different from the NMO in colour and structure. I think its a Hybrid, but could be wrong. Anyone have any thoughts to its ID?

Thanks
Mark

Almost certainly the hybrid between Northern Marsh and Heath Spotted orchid.
