Plant height varies greatly, for instance, in the UK the maximum height is around 20 cm, but here in the Mediterranean a height of 70 cm may be reached.
Flowers March–May (April–May in northern latitudes).
Each shoot may carry between 2 and 18 flowers.
The flowers have yellow-green sepals and a velvety red-brown labellum with a distinctive silvery-blue H marking so that the flowers much resemble an arthropod and especially a spider.

Similar to Ophrys fuciflora and Ophrys apifera but flowers differ in that late spider orchid and bee orchid have much smaller petals than sepals; in early spider orchid petals and sepals are a similar size.
They are also distinguished by patches of colour on the labellum; late spider orchid has a yellow point at the centre of the distal end of the labellum, while bee orchid has a red patch at the proximal end of the labellum.

Preferring alkaline soil, we grow ours in red clay or gray clay wth river sand and limestone.
Full sun and well-draining soil.
Ophrys sphegodes is pollinated by the miner bee
This orchid species is able to form symbiotic relationships with a range of species of mycorrhizal fungi.
