The Spotted Coralroot, Corallorhiza maculata var. maculata is the later blooming variety of two in our area. It is distinguished not only by its later bloom season but by the side lobes of the lip which are more or less parallel rather than being rounded. Like many of the Coralroots it is variable in color and this is a yellow-stemmed variety which is unnamed but which I've chosen to call Corallorhiza maculata var. maculata fma. aurea. We have only ever found it in one location where it grows in abundance.
