Corallorhiza striata Lindley
(Striped Coralroot Orchid)
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.
