  1. Oh, that's neat! Were they together naturally? Posted 3 months ago
    1. Yes, this is how they sat after removing the rock they were under :o)
      In the Netherlands A. nasatum is quite rarely found under natural conditions, so this was a nice photo opp. In my opinion, the species is usually introduced with imported rocks brought in to reinforce shores/banks etc. (such as in this harbour area!) or with plant material sold in garden centers and the like. When introduced "outside" (with rocks) it seems to be able to hold its ground quite well, but there are not too many spots where I can find it in NL.
