Bukovina nad Labem – Dříteč ash deposit

The ash deposit (also known as "badlands") between Bukovina and Dřítčí had been inhabited by a large population of the critically endangered Grayling until the 1990s. Other rarities of the area are Cylindera arenaria and a very rare Orthocerus clavicornis, dependent on the presence of certain lichens.
