  • PF: for the habitat types that can have a non-priority as well as a priority form (6210, 7130, 9430) enter "X" in the column PF to indicate the priority form.
  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation)

3.2 Species referred to in Article 4 of Directive 2009/147/EC and listed in Annex II of Directive 92/43/EEC and site evaluation for them

  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

Espacio constituido por un estanque de 2.500 m2, situado a una altitud de 1.650 m y orientado al sur. Se sitúa sobre suelo esquistoso pobre en carbonatos, con alternancia de pizarras y areniscas. Este espacio destaca por la presencia de comunidades acuáticas y higrófilas de distribución atlántica muy raras en Cataluña. Además de Luronium natans, cabe citar Alopecurus aequalis, Poa supina y Rorippa islandica. Alrededor del lago se localizan prados para el pastoreo y matorrales de Genistion Purgalis.

4.2 Quality and importance

Este lago supone una interesante muestra de lagos con una fuerte influencia del clima atlántico. Además supone única representación de Luronium natans en la red Natura 2000 de la región alpina española y abarca el 100% de su población.

5.3 Site designation (optional)

Los límites de este espacio han sido trazados de acuerdo con la cartografía topográfica y planimétrica de referencia, a escala 1:50.000, del Instituto Cartográfico de Catalunya, que es el instituto cartográfico oficial y competente de la Generalitat de Catalunya. Los mapas facilitados para formalizar la propuesta de este espacio y definir su delimitación, citados en más adelante en este formulario, tienen la misma precisión de detalles, y la misma calidad, que los mapas de la cartografía topográfica y planimétrica de referencia, a escala 1:50.000, que publica con carácter oficial el Instituto Cartográfico de Catalunya. Estos mapas son la referencia, si no se indica lo contrario, de los detalles de descripción planimétrica, topográfica y/o toponímica que se puedan dar en este formulario. El 100.00% del espacio está incluido en el 'Pla d'Espais d'Interès Natural' (PEIN), aprobado por el Decreto 328/1992 de la Generalitat de Catalunya. En concreto este 100.00% pertenece al PEIN Estanh de Vielha. La inclusión de este porcentaje en el PEIN implica un grado de protección en parte del lugar que no queda reflejado en el Apartado 5.1 del formulario, ya que la figura PEIN no está recogida en el mismo.
