Orchid species in and around Shimane

Orchidaceae, or orchid family, reportedly stands for no less than 25,000 kinds of species spreading across the world. About 230 of them are known inhabiting Japan in 75 genera, but what are featured in major Japanese pictorial flora books are no more than 90. Orchids are very rare in this part of the world. In fact, most of those are supposedly listed in Red Data Book in every prefecture as plants in need of protection.
Japanese orchids are not as gorgeous as those in tropical zone, but they attract people as well because of their their refined color and the mysterious flower-structure. Below are what I saw in Shimane and its environs so far, all being listed in Shimane RDB.
