Dactylorhiza viridis (L.) R. M. Bateman, Pridgeon & M. W. Chase[HC2]

Publication: Pridgeon & M. W. Chase

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: From Devos et al.,: Our results, which combine sequences of the internal and external transcribed spacers of the nuclear ribosomal DNA, support the monophyly of Dactylorhiza, with Coeloglossum being a sister clade. The position of C. viride in the phylogenetic tree, and the considerable morphological differences with respect to Dactylorhiza, incline us to retain both lineages as distinct genera.
