Reference: Flora Suecica, ed. 2 : 310 (1755)
Provenance: "Habitat in Gotlandiae 171. lucis."
Basionym: Orchis morio var. mascula L. (1753)
Type: Lectotype : Herb. Burser III:131, right hand specimen (UPS)
Designated by: Sennikov & al. in Taxon 63 : 1325 (1989)

Comments: Baumann & al. (in Mitteilungsbl. Arbeitskr. Heim. Orchid. Baden-Württemberg 21: 518, Abb. 34. 1989) wrongly treated this as a new name, rather than a new combination based on O. morio var. mascula L. (1753), and designated 1054.19 (LINN) as lectotype. However, O. mascula is homotypic with O. morio var. mascula, which is typified by a Burser collection.
