Bdellocephala punctata at Llyn Gerionydd

It was a chilly start in the Conwy Valley, but temperatures soon warmed up and it was a glorious day to be out and about. There is a wonderful display of Snowdrops in the local woodlands.

We collected samples from Llynn Geirionydd, and amongst the many invertebrates we found was this impressive flat worm, Bdellocephala punctata which in North Wales is found under stones in only two lakes, one of which is Geirionydd.

Amazingly despite the sub zero temperatures, this Dotted Border moth was active. The damselfly larva is Large-red Damselfly.
