A small fen called Radiofles in a vast heathland and drifting sand area just south of Radio Kootwijk, the Netherlands. Here I’m taking a sample which turned out to be filled with large Lecythium and/or Plagiophrys specimens.
There are several interesting fens in this area. An old fen is Gerritsflesch, which is now on military property. My two sample locations are Koeflesch and Radiofles.
