Rare species of Dutch Veluwe region


This is a video about a strawberry spider.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Many rare plants and animals in the Veluwe

by Maino Remmers

The carrion beetle, the true lover’s knot moth, the Alcon Blue butterfly and certainly the wart-biter: all rare animals to be found plentifully in Hoge Veluwe National Park. The biodiversity is many times higher than expected. Plant and animal species which worldwide are on the red list are doing well in this central Dutch park. …

Ranger Henk Ruseler says that even species are found which were thought to no longer occur in our country. “The strawberry spider is said to be very rare, but it was during the last count found in various places,” he says.

During the annual census by volunteers … reptiles, butterflies and unusual mosses were also found.

29 species of dragonflies

Ruseler drives the pickup through a stream which originates from the ice age. Just around the stream are 29 different species of dragonflies and damselflies.
