Southern Marsh-orchid

I agree with Southern: the broad lip with almost saucer-shaped sidelobes is typical, and the younger flowers at the top have a flat or up-turned-edged lip, whereas Early always has the lib folded back along the midline. Colour is typical for Southern, and it's a stout well-built plant too.
