The history of the detection of Spiranthes amoena in Georgia/Caucasus is exposed. Its status, endangerment and conservation needs are described. Although anthropogenic introduction is not to be excluded, kind and condition of its habitat as well as a population size with nearly one thousand plants indicate a native status of the species with an old spontaneous colonization in Georgia. The necessity to further clarify the relations of A. amoena and S. sinensis by morphological, karyological and molecular systematic investigations to justify their status as distinct taxa is stressed.
