Abstract

A conspicuous entity of the aggregate of Ophrys sphegodes s.l. growing on the northern slopes of the volcanic massif of Etna is known since more than 20 years. Detailed studies show a singular combination of morphological characters, differentiating this population slightly from the type-species and other closely related taxa as O. exaltata subsp. exaltata and subsp. panormitana, O. arachnitiformis subsp. archipelagi (incl. O. mateolana, O. cilentana) and O. garganica. Because of these morphological differences and its singular ecology it is described as Ophrys sphegodes subsp. grassoana. Furthermore two new hybrids are presented, Ophrys exaltata Ophrys garganica from Niscemi (CL) and O. bertolonii subsp. explanata × O. holosericea subsp. apulica from the island of Favignana in West Sicily. While the parent areas of the first hybrid overlap largely from Calabria to Sicily, the parent areas of the second hybrid according current knowledge overlap very restrictivly only on the Egadian Islands.
An den Abhängen des Ätna ist seit ca. 20 Jahren eine auffallende Sippe aus dem Aggregat von Ophrys sphegodes s.l. bekannt. Untersuchungen ihrer Morphologie zeigten, dass diese Sippe eigenständige Merkmale besitzt, sich geringfügig von der Nominatsippe unterscheidet und nicht anderen infraspezifischen Taxa zugeordnet werden kann. Sie wird als Ophrys sphegodes subsp. grassoana neu beschrieben. Des weiteren werden zwei neue Bastarde vorgestellt, Ophrys exaltata Ophrys garganica, gefunden bei Niscemi (CL) und O. bertolonii subsp. explanata × O. holosericea subsp. apulica von der Insel Favignana im Westen Siziliens. Während sich die Areale der Elternarten des ersten Bastards über weite Strecken von Kalabrien und Sizilien überlappen, treffen sich die Elternarten des letzteren nach bisheriger Kenntnis nur auf den Ägadischen Inseln.
