Neotinea tridentata (NL: Drietandige orchis / EN: Three-toothed Orchid / DE: Dreizähniges Knabenkraut / FR: Orchis tridenté, Orchis dentelé, Orchis à trois dents) is a species of orchid, closely related to the species I presented yesterday and a close look is needed to seperate them in the field. The small, odorless flowers are white, tinted pink or light violet. The helmet is formed by sepals and petals grown together at the base, the latter have dark veins both inside and out. The tips of the three sepals lean outward.
