Photo by Jamie McMillan One of several similar O.fusca-type orchids, and a recent split from O.cressa. Note yellow at the top and lower edges of the lip. Other fuscas found on Crete are Ophrys iricolor
, which is purplish at the top and underneath the lip, and Ophrys cressa with a less downcurved lip than creberrima. Very pleased with this photo as I hadn't considered it a split when I took it, but by luck it shows the downcurved lip well. More recently it has been suggested that all these are still best lumped under O. fusca
: Ophrys creberrima
