Anacamptis x gennarii (A. morio x A. papilionacea)   Hybrid Orchid

Anacamptis x gennarii (A. morio x A. papilionacea

Although near to both parents in the field, and there were plenty of both, this was the only example of this intrageneric hybrid which we saw while exploring the Gargano. Anacamptis morio (Green-winged Orchid) is on the left, Anacamptis x gennarii (Hybrid) in the centre and Anacamptis papilionacea (Pink Butterfly Orchid) is on the right.

Taxonomy: This is a new name for the hybrid between two parents which have been reallocated fairly recently from Orchis to Anacamptis and the main authorities agree that the correct and accepted name for this hybrid between Anacamptis morio (L.) R.M.Bateman, Pridgeon & M.W.Chase and Anacamptis papilionacea (L.) R.M.Bateman, Pridgeon & M.W.Chase is Anacamptis x gennarii (Rchb.f.) H.Kretzschmar, Eccarius & H.Dietr.
