LATE SPIDER-ORCHID Ophrys fuciflora (Height to 50cm) is superficially similar to both Bee Orchid and Early Spider-orchid. It differs from the former in its broader, less rounded lip, the tip of which has a green, upturned appendage; from the latter it is told by its pink, not green, outer perianth segments. It is restricted to chalk downs in Kent.
