As can be read on page 295, the species is tetraploid and reproduces asexually (i.e. apomictically). On page 299 of the article mentioned above you can read that there are also sexually (i.e. via insect pollination) reproducing diploid Nigritella in this region, namely the light colored Nigritella carpatica and the dark red Nigritella suceveana.
