old Species that is associated with old foliage leaves or stems (mature or starting to wither or decay). resource
on ground in fruits A largely arboreal species that is associated with fruits on the ground for part of its life-cycle. resource
open habitats Open vegetative grassland swards, dwarf herb communities and open, bare ground not associated with woodland closed canopies. Soils can be dry to damp, but are not generally permanently wet. broad biotope
open short sward This assemblages occurs in poached short sward grassland, especially calcareous grassland, but not in uniform, dense sward grassland where moist conditions prevail at ground level. SAT
open water in acid mire The assemblage type is found in lochans and temporary peat pools mainly in upland areas, but also at lower altitudes in northern districts. SAT
open water on disturbed mineral sediments Its natural habitats probably include coastal marshes and large river floodplains subject to periodic heavy flooding events, but it is also dominant in gravel pits and quarry pools and is one of the few assemblages to benefit from large scale anthropogenic disturbance. SAT
parasite An organism which lives in or on another organism (its host) and derives nutrients from it. label
peatland Wetlands where disturbance is limited, although levels of environmental stress may be high as in some upland examples. In large open-water bodies, it is confined to well-vegetated margins, but it is particularly characteristic of mires and seepages which may have little open water, but which remain permanently wet. Water level fluctuations are not usually significant or at least, when they do occur, the substrate rarely dries out completely. Consequently this assemblage type is dominant on wet peat. They have often been in longer existence than mineral marsh habitats. habitat

pond/seepage edge Wet, muddy areas at the edges of water in coastal situations (e.g. on a beach or in a saltmarsh). resource
pupate in foliage on ground A largely arboreal species that pupates in foliage at ground level. resource
