Importance and distribution in Luxembourg

Distribution map of Duchesnea indica (Andrews) Th.Wolf in Luxembourg. Recorder database, MNHNL, 23.01.2019.

The first documented occurrence of the species in Luxembourg dates from 2008. It was found in October 2008 in Ennëschte Bësch, municipality of Bertrange (Krippel et al. 2010). Only two observations are indicated in the Recorder database.

The yellow-flowered strawberry is a plant that prefers relatively moist and shaded habitats. It grows preferentially on soils with high nitrogen supply and benefits from increasing anthropogenic nitrogen deposition. It occurs in woods, grasslands and urban parks. Seeds are known to be dispersed by birds (Source: http://ias.biodiversity.be/species/show/107).
