Annex I habitats present as a qualifying feature, but not a primary reason for selection of this site
|6410 Molinia meadows on calcareous, peaty or clayey-silt-laden soils (Molinion caeruleae)|
Annex II species that are a primary reason for selection of this site
|1065 Marsh fritillary butterfly Euphydryas (Eurodryas, Hypodryas) aurinia|
|Marsh fritillaries Euphydryas aurinia occur over a wide area of traditionally-managed purple moor-grass Molinia caerulea pastures in south-east Carmarthenshire. The extent of suitable habitat, contained within more than 30 enclosures at Caeau Mynydd Mawr, suggests that this is one of the largest metapopulations in Wales.|
