Two New Records of Orchid Species for the Flora of Iraq: Anacamptis papilionacea (L.) R.M. Bateman, Pridgeon & M.W. Chase and Dactylorhiza romana (Sebast.) Soó

Abstract : The Orchidaceae is one of the most cosmopolitan flowering families; however, the national floristic knowledge for Iraqi territories is restricted by the outdated and incomplete status of Flora of Iraq. We already recently add two new records of orchid species for Iraq, and the study objective was to pursue the dynamics on field studies and thus provides new contribution for the Flora of Iraq. Two new orchid species were recorded for the first time in Iraq: (i) Anacamptis papilionacea found on Silé waterfall locality (Dostaka mountain, Duhok governorate), and (ii) Dactylorhiza romana found in Hariké locality (Gara mountain, Duhok governorate). Field illustrations, infraspecific identification (A. papilionacea subsp. schirwanica and D. romana subsp. georgica), environment and geographical distribution, conservation status, and a brief discussion about the new records are provided. This study highlights the importance of floristic surveys and their continuity over time as a first step toward the modern floristic knowledge including open databases
