Chloraea longipetala

On the road that leads inland from Pelluhue to Cauquenes, I found an area of about half a mile where this orchid was growing. A white flower with 6 tepales, yellow on the inside of lower labellum with green protruding lines....a really beautiful plant except for the fragrance, which was a bit farmyard like. The inflorescence has between 3 and 30 flowers depending on its age.
