Endangered orchids first found in a forest park in Zhejiang

The staff from Nanshan Provincial Forest Park and Zhejiang Forest Resource Monitoring Center cooperated to investigate the biodiversity in the forest park. For the first time, they found an endangered orchid-Shizhenia pinguicula in the forest park.

Native to east China's Zhejiang Province, the species grows at an altitude of 250 to 400 meters above sea level. Because of its weak reproductive ability, it has disappeared in many places.
