Very nice, Matt /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I had some fun guddling in the English streams and lakes of the Lake District last week too... will need to post some pics when I get them on the PC.

You might know the plants Matt? If not they are, in order of appearance...

Russian Comfrey
Red Campion
Meadow Cranesbill
Ox eye Daisy

The one with the cuckoo spit is maybe heath bedstraw?

The UK Bullhead is now C. perifretum according to Freyhof et al. I did pull me face a bit when that paper came out, don't mind forrin fish being messed around but Cottus gobio is a name that I learnt at a very young age. Same with Gasterosteus gymnurus for the western UK form of the Stickleback.

Thanks for the plant names Colin and yeah you're right of course Pete. Thread title edited accordingly. Any idea if this is G. gymnurus then? The habitat is slap bang in the centre of the country but I don't see scutes on the caudal peduncle??

Thanks chaps! Krister these weren't taken with the new cam - I was in England for a couple of weeks and had to borrow my brother's. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Eastern-flowing river so should be aculeatus or a hybrid form between gymnurus and aculeatus, although canals etc. which cross the country will alter distribution patterns. I should probably get the paper concerned, if nothing else all the specimens in the museum collection here probably need to be renamed. I wouldn't be surprised if a taxonomic lumper puts them all back in together anyway at some point.
