Habenaria viridis var. bracteata is the scientific, Latin or binomial name of the Long-bracted Green Orchid.

Specifically, the first word in the scientific name honors the wild orchid's genus. The second name honors the plant's species, whose hallmark is the green of its blooms and bracts or modified leaves. The scientific name also applies to the plant's other common names: American Frog, Bracted, Long-bracted, and Satyr Orchids.
