Lietuvos gegūnių (Dactylorhiza) atpažinimo problemos [The problems of identification of the Dactylorhiza taxa in Lithuania]. – Botanica Lithuanica, Suppl. 5: 47–61

The Dactylorhiza genus in Lithuania is represented by 8 species. Revision of herbarium material revealed that many specimens collected till 1996, due to some mistakes in the keys of identification, were identified erroneously. The morphological variability of important features are studied, and a new key for species identification is given in this paper; the distinctive features of the Dactylorhiza taxa in Lithuania and some particular cases of infraspecific variability are discussed.

Keywords: Dactylorhiza, Orchidaceae, identification, Lithuania.
