Platanthera ciliaris A. A. Reznicek

Habenaria ciliaris of Michigan Flora.

In sphagnum bogs, sometimes with P. blephariglottis in the southwestern Lower Peninsula and there hybridizing with it (see discussion under P. blephariglottis). Very rarely in moist acid sandy meadows and savannas, with bracken and a graminoid savanna understory, although more historical records are apparently from this type of habitat.
