"Eight populations of Epipactis helleborine (L.) Crantz originating from the area of Lower
Silesia in Poland (Central Europe) were examined in respect to composition of their nectar and its
influence on the insect attraction in field conditions. The chemical composition of Epipactis helleborine
(L.) Crantz nectar was studied by means of GC/MS SIM. A number of compounds with potential narcotic
properties were identified in the nectar, namely 3-{2-{3-{3-(benzyloxy)propyl}-3-indol, 7,8-didehydro-
4,5-epoxy-3,6-d-morphinan and oxycodone. Pollinator and visitor insects were identified. The key role of
ethanol in the process of alluring and stunning of the insects was discussed. A scheme of the influence of
the identified compounds on the pollinators was proposed."

As always, wild, the way you interact, and capture the beauty that abounds in "your" forest, and gardens is amazing. Are you a wood nymph?
