Epipactis thunbergii / Kakiran カキラン

 
Epipactis thunbergii is a perennial, terrestrial orchid found in sunny, moist grasslands or swamps, the stems standing 30-60 centimeters tall. The opposite leaves are green and a bit hairy, on which there exist remarkable longitudinal waves along the veins. As for flowers, the stems bear 5-10 yellow-brown flowers on the upper portion of them, each sepal and petal measuring 1.5cm in length; they stand out in concealment in plants around the vegetation. Shimane RDB lists this as a VU.
