Mycoheterotrophic Plants

How many of them are there?

Corallorhiza striata var. striata

Corallorhiza striata var. striata is the tallest of the size varieties of C. striata. The distribution pattern lacks Mexico and the south-eastern states of the U.S.A. (POWO 2021). The distribution could be coupled to the distribution of Coccygomimus pedalis, the insect which was observed to pollinate its flowers (Freudenstein 1997). Gray (1856) might have first described this species as C. macraei which has "the biggest flowers of the genus" and therefore conform the description of C. striata.
