1831 Floating water-plantain  Luronium natans
Brown Moss is an area of former heathland, now largely colonised by woodland, with a series of shallow pools. Floating water-plantain Luronium natans has been known to occur at Brown Moss for several years, and this site possibly represents a relict natural lowland population of the species. The population of Luronium at Brown Moss is relatively small, and appears to behave as a metapopulation, colonising the various pools according to their suitability.
