The site in Cumbria i visited with Howdon Blogger last weekend has in fact been used as a donor site for larvae that were reintroduced to Foulshaw Moss near Kendal.
|The naiad spends its time in the Sphagnum Mosses in the pools.|
|They exist as larvae for 1-3 years before emerging in the adult stage.|
|Male and female adults mating......the female only appearing over the water to lay her eggs in the Sphagnum|
Don't forget..........double click does the trick.
