I think that there is now a degree of agreement in the taxonomic world that the three Fragrant Orchids should each be accorded species status. They have been on the rise for many years - most textbooks had them as subspecies by the mid-1990s but the genetic investigation into orchids over the last few years has clearly demonstrated that they are distinct enough to be separataed into species. Thus they have become G. conopsea (Chalk Fragrant Orchid), G. borealis (Heath Fragrant Orchid) and G. densiflora (Marsh Fragrant Orchid).
