Kretzschmar, Eccarius & H.Dietr. = Neotinea ustulata x Neotinea tridentata, syn.: Orchis x austriaca A.Kern., Orchis x dietrichiana Bogenh. - Habitat: grassland next to a road and bushes, locally almost flat terrain, alluvial ground; cretaceous clastic rock (flysh) bedrock; quite humid, partly sunny place, exposed to direct rain; elevation 435 m (1.430 feet); average precipitations ~ 3.000 mm/year, average temperature 8-10 deg C, alpine phytogeographical region. Substratum: soil. Comment: Neotinea x dietrichiana is a small but beautiful natural hybrid between Three-Toothed Orchid Neotinea tridentata and Burnt-Tip Orchid Neotinea ustulata. Both species pose difficulties to taxonomy. They were originally placed to Neotinia genus, then transferred to Orchis genus and nowadays they landed in Neotinea genus. Orchids (Orchidaceae) often form hybrids among themselves, also among different genera. About 120 different combinations of natural crosspollination have been described in literature (Ref.5) resulting in different natural hybrids. But for Burnt-Tip Orchid Neotinea ustulata it is know that it was never found to have hybridized with any species other than Three-Toothed Orchid O. tridentata. These hybrids have been found several times in Slovenia; however this find is apparently the first in Upper Posočje region (northwest Slovenia). Protected according to: Uredba o zavarovanih prostoživečih rastlinskih vrstah, poglavje A, Uradni list RS, št. 46/2004 (Regulation of protected wild plants, chapter A, Official Gazette of Republic Slovenia, no. 46/2004), (2004). Pravilnik o uvrstitvi ogroženih rastlinskih in živalskih vrst v rdeči seznam, Uradni list RS, št. 82/2002 (Regulation of enlisting of endangered plant and animal species onto Red List, Official Gazette of Republic Slovenia, no. 82/2002) (2002). Indirectly enlisted in the Slovene Red List of rare and endangered species, marked by 'V' representing a vulnerable species. The hybrid is not listed directly, but both its parents are.
