This is in flower in the greenhouse now. I've not managed to flower one before. It's very late in the year as compared to the normal range of things like Ophrys that I grow, and I'm not sure I have the watering worked out yet.... hope it comes back next year :/

Looks lovely. (Makes me pine for my Himantoglossum hircinum - it didn't flourish, but the final nail was when the dog took a liking to its taste. )
Hope you keep it going.

A very attractive looking spike with its crinkly petals, apart from having 3 cypripediums I hardly ever look at temperate orchids....... I'm obviously missing out on a whole new range of plants :? .

I've been told that what was formerly H. caprinum in the Balkans is now supposed to be known as H. jankae (with H. caprinum being found elsewhere). I can't tell much difference between a lot of these fine distinctions in European orchids.... :/

I know what you mean Rob, many Chinese orchids looks the absolutely the same and have vender names. I hear from so many venders that try to pass off a sick plant as an expensive mutants.
