Good Find

Thanks! Is it locally or nationally scarce - should the local rangers be aware of it? Or is it just interesting?

Not Nationally Scarce but

Not Nationally Scarce but probably quite close to being. Definitely one to mention in the management plan. Larvae in freshwater sponges, ridiculuous life history.
