Description:

This plant looks very much like an orchid and the flowers are very orchid-like, but the leaves are nothing like an orchid. They are lanceolate and toothed and the upper side is quite shiny. The stem is hairy. The flower is not dissimilar to that of the Marsh Fragrant-orchid.
Apologies for the poor photos. I hope you can magnify them.
