I have a plant of Ophrys tenthredenifera just starting to flower this week. It's come out a rather pale shade though. A shame... I used to grow a lovely richly-coloured one, which I lost, and this replacement - while lovely - isn't doing it for me so much with the colours :P Both are in the photo gallery here:

Current plant:

1668

This is the deceased plant in all her former glory:

176

I can see that the old plant also had far more rounded petals too. Anyway, kinda interesting to see this variation, when apparently these are still both O. tenthredenifera while other more minor variations get classified as whole new species!

I take your point about the comparison Rob but that current plant is still a fine looking one.
