European Orchids generally:
- Delforge, Pierre (2005), Guide des Orchidées d'Europe,
d'Afrique du Nord et du Proche Orient, 3e édition entièrement revue et augmentée, Lausanne (Delachaux & Niestle)
The completeness of this field guide is unbeatable, but the assignment to ranks of
many orchids needs discussion and the group assignment of Ophrys is in many cases misleading.
