Neotinea lactea (former: Orchis lactea - Milky orchid) is a early flowering specimen. We mostly found specimen who were already dried up, but a few were still "photo-worthy". There are some other closely related specimens to be found on Crete, but the green stripes on the in- and outside of the helmet is the best diagnostic character
