Unidentified Orchid --(Platanthera sp.) (16424 bytes)

Interested in College in Alaska?

Unidentified Orchid
Platanthera sp.

One of the distinguishing characteristics between a couple of similar species is the spur, so I tried to get a picture that showed the it. I'm unsure whether it is more cylindrical or sac-like, however.

Location: Indian River Valley, Sitka, Alaska
