||The halophytic plant associations appear to be quite variable. In these associations plants of great scientific interest and aesthetic value have been observed. The Kalodiki fen is an area of great importance in comparison with the other wetlands of W Greece, and constitutes a unique peatland formation. The following species have been allocated motivation D for the reasons outlined below: Petrorhagia obcordata subsp. epirotica, which is a Balkan endemic distributed in Greece and the former Yugoslavia; in Greece occurring only in Epeiros and Thessaly; Cladium mariscus, an endangered aquatic species occurring in the northwestern parts of Kalodiki fen forming a charcteristic plant association; Nymphaea alba, which grows in places protected from wind and fast-flowing water, on substrates with old plant remains. The aesthetic value of its plant communtities is very high in the whole of the wetland. Its populations, however, are degraded and must be placed under protection; Ranunculus trichophyllus, a european species forming aesthetically impressive plant associations within the water of the Kalodiki fen. The wetland of Kalodiki is an old, well-conserved lake with a noteworthy fauna. Among the species living in this ecosystem Lutra lutra is the most striking since it is thought to be a good bioindicator of unpolluted water. This taxon, together with some reptiles, are among those referred in Annex II of the Directive 92/43/EEC (see section 3.2). Some Other and Greek Important vertebrate taxa (excluding birds) have been recorded from this site (section 3.3). The mole Talpa stankovici (written as T. romana) and the jackal Canis aureus, are mentioned in the Greek Red Data Book as "Insufficiently Known" and "Vulnerable" respectively. Some of the taxa are protected by the Bern Convention thus being eligible for motivation C. Moreover, the wildcat Felis silvestris receives motivation C, since it is also mentioned in the CITES Convention. Some of the taxa are also protected by the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981 and so justify the motivation D (the excluded taxa are both Rana species, the legless lizard Ophisaurus apodus, the viperid snake Vipera ammodytes, the noutria Myocastor coypus, the marten Martes foina, the badger M. meles, the jackal, the wildcat and the three rodent taxa of the genera Microtus and Apodemus).Additionally, the toad Bufo viridis, the frog Hyla arrborea and the colubrid snake Natrix tessellata receive motivation D because they have been evaluated by the CORINE-Biotopes Project. The wildcat is marked with D since it has been evaluated by the above project and is generally a rare species in Greece. Some taxa justify motivation D as they are Balkan endemics (Rana epeirotica, Alygyroides nigropunctatus, Podarcis taurica ionica, Microtus thomasi, and both Apodemus taxa). The occurrence of a considerable bird community in this site completes the rich vertebrate fauna of the area. Threatened species such as Milvus migrans ("Endangered"), Ardea purpurea, Aquila pomarina (both "Vulnerable") and Anas querquedula ("Insufficiently Known"), are elements of this avifauna. The invertebrate species listed in section 3.3 with motivation D is protected by the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981.
