Platanthera x hybrida

Finnish Platantheras hybridise together, and P. chlorantha x P. bifolia is called P. x hybrida. It is something between its parents, and it is occasionally found in Ahvenanmaa. I have not seen it myself, nor have I seen its photo, so I can´t tell you about this plants look. 

Fourth Platanthera which have sometimes been mentioned from Finland in accident is P. obtusata ssp. oligantha. This species is found from Sweden and Norway, but not from Finland. It wouldn´t be impossible to find this tiny plant, as there are many unexplored areas in Lapland, but there just is so few limey, wooden fjells in Finland... Levinneisyys. 

Does someone have a photo of this hybrid?
