Listera species   "Twayblade orchid"  

The only place in Yellowstone that I have found a twayblade orchid is on the South rim trail from Artist's Point in the Canyon area. So if you find one, please drop me a note! I have also found an individual of this species in northern Montana, in the Great Bear Wilderness, Flathead National Forest. I was unable to identify the species because the one individual I found was making seed pods.
