dubia [soort]


Leucorrhinia dubia is fairly common in The Netherlands. It is largely restricted to acidic, oligotrophic habitats on the Pleistocene soils. It occurs, more rarely, in raised peat-bog remnants and, very rarely, in the coastal dunes. The species has declined due to eutrophication and desiccation of its habitat. It appears to be more vulnerable to extreme acidification than L. rubicunda. The latter species is relatively more common in the north of the country, while L. dubia is more numerous in the south. The species is listed as vulnerable in the Dutch Red list.
