Authors:
   DEVILLERS-TERSCH.:  Jean Devillers-Terschuren (1955 - ), Canadian orchid specialist in Belgium
   DEVILLERS:  Pierre Devillers (1938 - ), French orchid specialist in Belgium
   L.:  Carl von Linné (Linnaeus, 1707 - 1777), Swedish naturalist who introduced the binary naming system for plants and animals
 

Etymology:
   Ophrys:   Greek plant name, from ophrys = eyebrow
   phryganae:   growing in the phrygana
 

According to H.F.PAULUS in Jour.Eur.Orch 52 (2-4): 355ff (2020) there is generally still a need for clarification regarding Ophrys phryganae because it is described from Crete and has the pollinating bee Andrena panurgimorpha there. There are plants in other parts of the eastern Mediterranean, e.g. in Attika, which are morphologically not or hardly distinguishable, but which are not sexually attractive for the Cretan bee, but for Andrena humilis and the closely related Andrena clypella.
