Default Orchid ID

Hi,
I found this orchid in the woods near where I live - a very localised population found on a steep bank along a footpath. I have't seen them before... anyone know?

It isn't an orchid. It's common toothwort: Lathraea squamaria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nice to see it though, because despite its name it isn't something one comes across particularly often.
