The Common Spotted-orchid (Dactylorhiza fuchsii) is a commonly occurring species of Eurosiberian orchid. It is widely variable in colour and height, ranging from 15 to 60 cm in height. The dense and rich-flowered inflorescence (flower spike) is at first conical then cylindrical. The flower colour can vary from white to pale purple with purple spots, a symmetrical pattern of dark purple loops or dots and dashes. This group was captured in a grass meadow above Carrickfergus, N. Ireland.
