I think this is a Pyramidal Orchid. If I am right perhaps iSpot will give a scientific name.

PO Anacamptis pyramidalis is

PO Anacamptis pyramidalis is completely different to this. It has unmarked lip and leaves, a different shape of flower, and a denser spike of smaller flowers (though that is not always strictly pyramidal in form). If you Google, you will find lots of images.

If you don't know the Latin name for an ID you offer, just enter the English name in the appropriate field and hit 'Get recommended'. That should do it, although you may need to make a selection from a list in some cases.
