AnOrchid: Terrestrial from Yellowstone National Park USA: Observed this Terrestrial Orchid at Yellowstone National Park USA
Height about 20cm
I think this is Merten’s coralroot.
Corallorhiza mertensiana
Please opine.


I have no idea but I hope its Corallorhiza mertensiana
Commonly found in deep coniferous forests and and subalpine forest.
They have no roots but branched rhizomes that resemble coral.


For me ID is correct !


Wow, you saw this in wild I assume. Not an easy thing to see…

Yes Corallorhiza mertensiana
