The paper gives a brief account of the latest results of mycorrhizae of orchids by reviewing the current literature. Main parts are: the presence of fungus in the ontogenesis of the orchids; mutualistic symbiosis or parasitism?; isolation and identification of mycorrhizal fungi; the mycorrhizal fungi of the Hungarian orchids: Rhizoctonia, other basidiomycetous fungi, ascomycetous fungi; and the specifity of the orchidaceous mycorrhiza.

The main aim of this account is to provide a more detailed scientific background to the chapter entitled 'The orchid mycorrhiza' in the forthcoming title Atlas of Hungarian Orchids published in Hungarian.
