Comment: Obligate mycoheterotrophic non-photosynthetic orchid Neottia nidus-avis is a kind of epiparasite (the one that feeds on another parasite) since it takes energy from fungi that in turn get their energy from vascular plants in the context of a common mycorrhizal relation. Enlisted in the Slovene Red List of rare and endangered species, marked by “V” representing a vulnerable species.
