Said to resemble the colors of the Eurasian woodcock, the woodcock bee-orchid can be found from the northwestern Mediterranean, from the Iberian Peninsula to northwest Italy. The flowers resemble females of bees in the genus Eucera and even mimic the scent of receptive females. Male bees pollinate the orchids when attempting to mate with the female decoy.
