The plant shown here shall now get the name Himantoglossum caprinum according to the article Himantoglossum jankae (Orchidaceae: Orchideae), a new name for a long-misnamed lizard orchid written by Molnár, Kreutz, Bateman et al. published in Phytotaxa 73:8-12 in 2012. The orchid growing further west which up to now had the name Himantoglossum caprinum shall now get the new name Himantoglossum jankae.
I didn't implement this change yet.
