Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
Notes: Massive, fleshy appearance. This species seems to have a number of synonyms including Himantoglossum longibracteatum, Barlia longibracteata and Loroglossum longibracteatum. I am not sure what is the currently preferred name.
Found growing next to old salt pan lagoons adjacent to the Etang de Berre and next to Marseille Airport.
Photos taken on a mobile phone so not the best quality!
