  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • 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

A partir de ciertos niveles se encuentran formaciones vegetales hidromorfas de extraordinario interés botánico: Genisto berberideae-ericetum tetralicis, Gentiano pneumonanthe-ericetum mackaianae; Erico mackaianae-sphanetum papillosi.

4.2 Quality and importance

Las turberas de cobertor situadas en este lugar pueden considerarse como ecosistemas hídricos relictos localizados en escasos enclaves de las Sierras Septentrionales Galaico-Asturianas. La composición florística de estas turberas se encuentra enriquecida con la presencia de elementos de carácter endémico.Presencia de lepidópteros (Erebia triaria pargapondalense, Erebia epiphron xistralensis) considerados como reliquias glaciares endémicas.
