Ophrys × arachnitiformis

Ophrys × arachnitiformis, the False Spider Orchid, is an orchid native to Europe.[2] It is apparently a hybrid resulting from a cross between O. fuciflora × O. sphegodes, but has become established in the wild in Britain, France (including Corsica), Germany, parts of Italy (Liguria, Tuscany, Lazio, Apulia, Sicily, Sardinia), Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, and the former Yugoslavia.[1][3]
