The Maltese Pyramidal Orchid (Anacamptis urvilleana) is an endemic specie of orchid
closely related to the Pyramidal Orchid (A. pyramidalis) though the flowering period and
shape of the inflorescens are different in the two species. The flower colour varies from
almost white to pink and the plants are generally shorter. Some authors consider this
species as a variety or subspecies ofA. pyramidalis.
