21 taxa (genera) belong to the consortion of Aconitum moldavicum Hacq. ex Reichenb. subsp. moldavicum, and 25 ones to Aconitum degenii Gáyer subsp. degenii consortion. There were not noticed any essential distinctions between the species. The highest consortive diversity was found out in the middle part of stem and on the leaves (16 familiae). Phytophages (40%) and anthophilous organisms (35%) dominate over the trophic consortive groups. 71% all of the investigated consort taxa belong to Insecta. The consortive structure of monkshoods depends on heterogeneity of their localities.
