Vorige Art/previous species (Left arrowball from Animation City 1991)     Nigritella graciliflora  W.FOELSCHE     Nächste Art/next species (Left arrowball from Animation City 1991)
 

Fam.:  Orchidaceae / Orchid Family

Genus:  Nigritella  RICH.
 

Authors:
   W.FOELSCHE:  Wolfram Foelsche (1933 - ), Austrian musician and botanist from Graz
   RICH.:  Louis Claude Marie Richard (1754 - 1821), French botanist
 

Etymology:
   Nigritella:   nigritia = the black
   graciliflora:   dainty-flowered
 

In Ber. Arbeitskrs. Heim. Orchid. 35 (1) 2018 Wolfram FOELSCHE described the new Nigritella graciliflora from Trenchtling. The separating attributes to Nigritella bicolor are narrow lip and somewhat longer lateral sepals. It is a small population of few square meters, while some ten meters further growing red Nigritella have normal wide lips, and therefore are to be called Nigritella bicolor. To me the species rank of Nigritella graciliflora seems much too high for this variety.
