Jewels from the meadow 3: Orchis collina

This is a rare species in Portugal, whose distribution seems to be fairly limited to the Adiça range, a mountain ridge in Alentejo made up of highly metamorphic carbonated rocks. Alongside this species we can find many calcicole plants and animals, rare in Portugal and the Iberian Peninsula.
