Basionym: Arachnites biancae Tod., Orchid. Sicul.: 83. 1842.
Synonyms:
Ophrys discors Bianca, Nov. Pl. Sp. Hyblam: 8. 1842, nom. illeg.;
Ophrys biancae (Tod.) Macch., Nuovo Giorn. Bot. Ital. 13: 315. 1881;

Note: Baumann & Künkele (1986) considered Arachnites biancae Tod. an illegitimate name and claimed that the name Ophrys discors was validly published by Gussone in 1845. However, this interpretation seems incorrect (Wirth & Blatt 1988).
