Abstract. P. Delforge.- The Nigritella from the Picos de Europa (Spain) [Natural. belges (Orchid. 5) 73 (1992).- 137-142]. The determining of the Nigritella from Cantabric mountains is revised according to the last taxonomical changes in the genus. At the actual stade of investigations, it seems that this orchid, and also, perhaps, Pyrenean populations from France, belong to Nigritella nigra s.st., a triploid and apomictic species regarded as a Scandinavian endemic, and not to the Alpine N. rhellicani nor N. austriaca. A synoptic table of the macroscopic distinctive features is given and a discussion on the questions that have been shelved is made.
