A new and extensive population of Stuckenia × suecica in the River Suir, S.E. Ireland
Keywords:Potamogeton; pondweed; hybrid
We describe the distribution and habitat of a newly-discovered population of Stukenia × suecica (K. Richt.) Holub, the hybrid between S. pectinata (L.) Börner and S. filiformis (Pers.) Börner, encompassing a 60km stretch of the River Suir in South Tipperary (v.c.H7), Ireland. As in Yorkshire, the hybrid here is outside the geographical range of its rarer parent, S. filiformis.
