1065 Marsh fritillary butterfly  Euphydryas (Eurodryas, Hypodryas) aurinia
This damp and sheltered site supports a medium-sized but strong marsh fritillary Euphydryas aurinia population in a neutral grassland/fen mosaic. It is strategically placed close to other smaller sub-populations, with which it forms a metapopulation, and may exchange individuals with the large population at Southey Moor (outside the SAC series).
