Plant identification

We came across this orchid-like flower on a trip to Andalucia a couple of weeks ago. Very hairy leaves and stems, lovely flower structure.

Can't find it in any of the usual books. May be some sort of orchid? Location was in the mountains of Andalucia, about the samew height above sea level as Mount Snowdon apparently.

Looks like an eyebright

aka Euphrasia, but it looks different from the British species.

Why not...

...post your photos as an observation? More people will see them there.
