belgarum

I only know of this variety from Harrap's 'Orchids of Britain and Ireland'. To me, the picture there does not really correspond to your picture. What makes this 'belgarum'?

Don't apologise!

He may well be right! I am just keen to know...in spite of calling myself 'ophrys', I have never looked at varieties within Bee Orchid!!
