Platanthera latilabris Lindl., Gen. Sp. Orchid. Pl. 289 1835. (syn: Habenaria bonatiana Schltr.; Habenaria latilabris (Lindl.) Hook.f.; Habenella latilabris (Lindl.) Szlach. & Kras-Lap.; Pecteilis latilabris (Lindl.) Mitra; Platanthera acuminata Lindl.; Platantheroides latilabris (Lindl.) Szlach.);
Growing next to a group of Malaxis acuminata is this sole plant with green flowers which appear to be of the orchid family too. The leaves have less ridges and are not divided by them into as many segments. Please help with the ID.

I had first thought that I had found P. edgeworthii but later on closer look found the bracts slightly longer than ovaries and lips broad at base and tapering down. I think this should be Platanthera latilabris. Please advise.
