    Had the pleasure to visit the 'inside' of Huanglong Scenic Area with Wenqing Perner some days ago: Even if the peek flowering of flavum and tibeticum was about finished this is always again a marvelous place ….

    Nice Jean. Such a unique habitat for these lovely orchids. Your pictures make me reminisce about my trip to those wonderful mountains. Thank you!

    What an exciting trip! The habitat seems strange
    for orchids, but then again what do I know about
    China. I'd love to see as many photos as you care
    to post.

    What species of Dactylorhiza did You find?
    I cannot identify. From the 7 Chinese species fuchsii fits best.

    In his book 'Orchids of Huanglong' Holger did not report any Dactylorhiza. This is Ponerorchis chusua (pages 205-208) , quite common in the valley now, flowering from late June to Juli .

    Hey Jean, the only Dactylorhiza seen on my trip of the same area was D. viridis, also known under the name Coeloglossum viride.

    Love to see more pics.

    reported are the 7 species:
    salina
    hatagirea
    umbrosa
    fuchsii
    incarnata cruenta
    umbrosa
    viridis (I have no idea why this species should be a Dactylorhiza now)

    Beautiful. I'm surprised they are growing so wet. What temps are the waters? Thanks for sharing.

    Yes Tom, Holger in his book has it as Coeloglossum, as has Cribb in his book 'Guide to the flowers of western China' … (btw. Cribb only reports 2 Dactylorhiza species for all China).

    Eric, acc. to Holger Perner (Orchids of Huanglong) the Huanglong National Park in the lower part of the valley is filled with yellow calcareous travertine, the upper part being Devonian and Permian limestone. There are different springs where the water temp. can be as low as 1 C. ; even in Juli, at +/- 25 C, when I put my hand into the water it is cool to cold. In a relatively dry winter the bassins and waterfalls can dry out partially.
