Dactylorhiza x transiens

This specimen doesn't look quite right in the photograph for straight D. fuchsii, and the shape of the labellum and large central lobe suggest the cross with D. maculata. But impossible to be sure without the whole plant in fron of one, and preferable others nearby too. This hybrid is much over-recorded for the very variable D. fuchsii.
