Comments to the Table: As it will be seen, this species was first recorded in the area in 1992. It is always very low, only 10-15 cm in height, with unspotted leaves and flowers with a broad, dark purple labellum. It grows on one of the edges of the lake, often surrounded (or even covered) by clover. (To see graph, point at ).
