The Netherlands: two new plant species found in marshes


Carex davalliana

From Alterra in The Netherlands:

While doing research on marsh plants, Alterra found two plant species new for The Netherlands.

In a calcineous wells area in South Limburg, Eddy Weeda found the Carex davalliana, a species of Central European calcineous marshes.

In England, Belgium and Northern Germany, this species has become extinct.

Next, in the Wieden in Overijssel province, they discovered the [moss] Pseudocalliergon trifarium, characteristic for non acidic bogs in the Arctic and in high mountains.
