Series: European Terrestial Orchids

Anacamptis morio subsp. longicornu (NL: Langsporige harlekijnorchis / EN: Long-spurred Orchid / DE: Langsporniges Knabenkraut / FR: Orchis à long éperon) is a species of orchid. The subspecies is marked by a very long spur that broadens at the tip. The small lip shows a strong trisection into 2 downward extended and pointed side lobes, as well as a narrowly triangular middle lobe. In the centre of the lip there is a bright white stripe that is normally dotted with small purple blotches, but in this specimen the blotches are missing.
