Hi all.

I was lucky enough to spend the day with Orchid experts Michael Lowe and Ian Phillips yesterday and in there company I learnt a great deal but sorting these Ophrys species took some doing. I have attached four photographs of four seperate species of Ophrys, you may see why they are confusing.

Golly Mick, I would have classed them all as Ophrys fusca. In fact I've got lots of photos that could be any of them!

It's so, so dry that flowers are taking their time coming out in the Serrania de Ronda, even the weeds are dying in places. The only area with some orchids and other flowers at the moment is Grazalema, so perhaps they have had more rain than the meseta de Ronda.

I will re~look at my O. fusca photos now.

Thanks, Brenda
