In 2008 two new populations of Somatochlora arctica where discovered in the southeastern part of the province for Overijssel. These populations are the second and third for Overijssel. One population is located at the crossborder nature reserve Witte veen where it can be found in a peat area which is dominated by Eriophorum angustifolium, Molinea caerulea and Sphagnum-mosses. The second population is located in both the Overijssel as the Gelderland part of Het Lankeet. During the first visit the actual reproduction site couldn’t be found. In late summer 2008 the probable reproduction site was found. This beautiful peat area is dominated by Narthecium ossifragum, Eriophorum angustifolium and Sphagnum species like S. cuspidatum en S. magellanicum. On the 20th of May 2009 31 exuviae and several juveniles where found here, which shows that a big population is present here. Probably more populations can be found in the next years.
