Anacamptis pyramidalis (L.) Rich.


Orchis pyramidalis Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 940. 1753.

“Habitat in Helvetiae, Belgii, Angliae, Galliae arenosis, cretaceis.” RCN: 6810.

Lectotype (ALEisawi in Kew Bull. 41: 389. 1986): Herb. Linn. No. 1054.17 (LINN).

Current name: Anacamptis pyramidalis (L.) Rich.  LSID  ( Orchidaceae  LSID  ).

Note: Al-Eisawi’s indication of type material in LINN can refer only to one collection (1054.17) and his choice therefore has priority over that of Baumann & al. (in Mitteilungsbl. Arbeitskr.. Heim. Orchid. B aden - W iirttem berg21: 439, Abb. 2. 1989), who chose a Ray figure instead.
