spur and a deep divided lip with the central lob beeing slightly longer than the other two.
The name of the genus Dactylorhiza comes from the greek words dactylos and riza that mean finger and root. It refers to the shape of the root of this genus. The name of the species means the one that has a sack. The colour of the flowers can vary from pale pink to purple but it always has the characteristic dots. The leaves are also covered in brownish dots. I saw all those beautiful orchids in Voidomatis valley in Epirus.
