I found a small colony of these today in a damp hazelwood corpse.They are obviously recently flowered andgiven that I am wondering if they are Ladies Tresses. About 45-50cm high.

Not Lady's Tresses

Spiranthes would not have large bracts in the inflorescence or such broad leaves. Definitely an orchid, perhaps an Epipactis or Platanthera, I cannot say!
