Corallorhiza striata Lindley
(Striped Coralroot Orchid)

Family: Orchidaceae

Status: Native

By var., see Allred

Corallorhiza striata is similar to C. wisteriana and C. maculata. Striped corallroot orchid is easy to tell from the others by the obvious stripes on the labellum rather than dots. The stripes are visible even on the capsules after going to fruit.
