This aquatic orchid with a broaadly Mediterranean distribution is present in all regions of Italy except in the Valle d'Aosta and perhaps in Trentino-Alto Adige. It grows in wet meadows and marshes, in swamps, along the edges of ponds, on fresh and slightly acidic soils, from sea level to the lower montane belt. In the temporary ponds of Sardinia it is common, and can occupy large areas from the outer belt to the center. The genus name derives from the Greek 'anakamptéin' (fold) for the outer tepals which are bent outwards or for the two raised and spreading structures which are located at the entrance of the spur; the species name is derived from the Latin words 'laxus' (loose) and 'flos' (flower), referring to the lax inflorescence with relatively few flowers. The species was recently transferred into the genus Anacamptis on the basis of molecular data; before it was placed into the genus Orchis , which in Greek means 'testicles', referring to the two paired tubers of different sizes. Flowering period: April to June. Syn.: Orchis laxiflora Lam.



Italian name(s): Galletti (Veneto, Vicenza), Orchide acquatica (Italia), Orchidea lassiflora (Italia)
