Abstract: Orchids have always garnered the interest of enthusiastic amateurs and nonprofessional researchers as a charismatic species group and have become a flagship for Mediterranean flora. At the same time they are a decent indicator for biodiversity and environmental quality through their association with specific pollinators and mycorrhizal fungi. Historical records for orchids occurring in the Maltese Islands number some 30 different species, but there is little to no comprehensive data on their abundance and distribution.
