03 Jul 1913 Rostherne Mere SJ7484 Adult 1 f.circellata. This is a further example of the survival of a mossland species. This form, once thought to be a separate species, occurred at Chat Moss where it has long been extinct, is found near Delamere together with the typical form. R.S.Edleston recorded this species from Bowdon in the 1850's and, as it is known that Edleston was often purposely vauge about precise localities, it is possible that this record relates to Rostherne.
