Where is Auricled Twayblade (Neottia auriculata)
located in the wild?
Listera auriculata grows in a variety of cool, moist habitats. In the Northeastern USA it is typically found on forest riverbanks that are occasionally flooded or scoured by ice. It can also be found sandy stream banks, swamps, calcareous alluvium, or sphagnum bogs.
Listera auriculata occurs in the Eastern portion of Northern North America. Its Western limit is Manitoba and Minnesota. Its Southern limit is Wisconsin and Michigan. As of 2016, its global status was assessed as G3, vulnerable, by NatureServe. At the local level, it is listed as Critically Imperiled (S1) or Imperiled (S2) in about half the states and provinces in which is occurs. Globally, only 61 occurrences have been observed since 1989, but large portions of its range have not been surveyed, so the true number of occurrences is unknown.
