Abstract. P. Delforge.- Contribution to the clarification of the nomenclature in the sectio Pseudophrys Godfery 1928 (Orchidaceae) [Natural. belges 85 (Orchid. 17) (2004): 110-124]. In the last 25 years, the number of species of the Ophrys fusca s.l. complex have increased notabily on the basis of the recognition of numerous species biologically isolated by an own specific pollinator. Unfortunately, some of that taxons are waiting a legitime scientific name since more than 15 years, a prejudicial situation for their studies and, if necessary, their conservation. Three of them are described here as Ophrys sabulosa sp. nov., a Sicilian member of the O. attaviria species group, Ophrys gackiae sp. nov., a Sicilian member of the O. funerea species group, and Ophrys fabrella sp. nov., a Balearic member of the O. obaesa species group.
