(last page)Pseudorchis, valkokämmekät

There are two species in this genus, other which has two subspecies: P. albida ssp. straminea (in Finland etc.), P. albida ssp. albida (for example in Sweden) and P. frivaldii which is coming from Mid-Europe. It is possible that other species could be found elsewhere than Europe, I am not sure. P. a. ssp. straminea also grows in Newfoundland, where it could be brought by Vikings in ancient times. 

The genus is sometimes called as Leucorchis
