This page is dedicated to the memory of my friend Manfred Fendler (Heidelberg), who shared my interest for orchids and other plants for 20 years. Not only this orchid species we "discovered" together in those times, when the photos from near Füssen came into being. In July 2007 he died of cancer at the larynx, only 53 years old.
