  • 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

The site is situated in the center of Istria peninsula, near the town Pazin, more precisely settlement Vela Traba. It is characterized by wooded canyon part of torrential stream Draga and surrounding area with garrigue, macchia, meadows, arable land, sinkholes and small villages. Lithostratigraphic units represented in this area are rudist limestones (cenomanian-maastricht - K21-6), alluvial sediments (b-aQ2). Soils: brown soil on limestone, loessivized and typical deep terra rossa. The relief is result of dynamic geotectonic relations, hydrogeological conditions, climate and anthropogenic influences.

4.2 Quality and importance

- one of only two sites for species Eriogaster catax in Mediterranean biogeographic region - the site is important for butterfly species Euphydryas aurinia and day-flying moth species Euplagia quadripunctaria - the site is important for saproxylic beetles Cerambyx cerdo, Morimus funereus and Lucanus cervus
