Brussels - Park Ambiorix


Park in square Ambiorix
This park is very peculiar as it hosts many ponds. As they are dried and clean during the winter I did not expect to find anything. I have been surprised by the icredible variety of inhabitants I found around middle September. And, even most surprisingly, I collected a new kind of ostracods I had never seen before. Information on this new ostracods can be found here.


Species found:

  • Daphnia magna

  • Moina

  • Green Ostracod

  • Cypricercus fuscatus

  • Lesser boatman

  • Cloeon dipterum

  • Bloodworm

  • Unidentified coleoptera
