Ophrys tenthredinifera.
Ophrys guêpe.
Sawfly orchid.

A beautiful Ophrys! Very colorful with pretty shapes, it will be found in some southern departments in April. (Aude, eastern Pyrenees, Gers, Vaucluse and Corsica)

However, its labellum presents a very wide variety of colors and shapes, so we will judge on the overall appearance of the flower to validate the species.

The appendix (at the bottom and in the center of the labellum) is often very upturned and surmounted by fairly visible developed hair.
