Orchis militaris is a widespread European species of very limited occurrence in Greece, where it is restricted to a few localities in the north-east, notably on Mt Falakro, where it is fairly rare in subalpine meadows over limestone at 1200–1600 m. It is a relatively large plant distinguished by the 5 whitish pink or greyish pink perianth segments convergent into an acute hood.
