The Field Elm cultivar Ulmus minor '
', commonly known as the Sowerby Elm, was described (as "Ulmus nitens" var. "
" ) by Moss in "The Cambridge British Flora" 2: 90. 1914. The tree, once referred to as the Norfolk Elm by Smith, was commonly found in the hedgerows and woods of Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, and Huntingdonshire in the early 20th century before the advent of Dutch elm disease.
Moss described it as a taller tree than '
', with the lower branches spreading at right angles, the upper less tortuous; leaves even more asymmetrical at the base, more acuminate at the apex. Melville considered it a hybrid of 'Coritana'.
Some examples of hydrozoans are the freshwater jelly ("Craspedacusta
"), freshwater polyps ("Hydra"), "Obelia", Portuguese man o' war ("Physalia physalis"), chondrophores (Porpitidae), "air fern" ("Sertularia argentea"), and pink-hearted hydroids ("Tubularia").
Melville considered that both 'Hunnybunii' and '
' were hybrids of 'Coritana'. He also believed that an elm he called "Ulmus × diversifolia" had 'Coritana' in its parentage. Kew and Wakehurst Place lists include putative hybrids between 'Coritana' and other forms of "U. minor", and between 'Coritana' and "Ulmus glabra".
The waters of Conservatory Water shelter a seasonal population of unusual minute freshwater jellyfish, "Craspedacusta
". In the sculptured Beaux-Arts pediment of an upper-floor window of 927 Fifth Avenue, overlooking Conservatory Water, the Red-tailed Hawk named "Pale Male" set up a nest, under the binocular watch of the Park's numerous bird-watchers.
Slugs are parasitised by several organisms, including acari and a wide variety of nematodes. The slug mite, "Riccardoella limacum", is known to parasitise several dozen species of mollusks, including many slugs, such as "Agriolimax agrestis", "Arianta arbustrum", "Arion ater", "Arion hortensis", "Limax maximus", "Milax budapestensis", "Milax gagates", and "Milax
". "R. limacum" can often be seen swarming about their host's body, and live in its respiratory cavity.
Fishing for pleasure (including ice fishing) is also relatively common, mainly on the northern shore where there are several fishing areas with dirt paths leading to Pond Street, and on the southern shore near the boat ramp. Rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout, largemouth bass, chain pickerels, bluegills, pumpkinseeds, brown bullheads, carp, eels, perch, and golden shiners are all relatively common. A type of freshwater hydrozoan, "Craspedacusta
", can also be found in the pond.

". Of course, any use of beneficial organisms presents risks of new invaders or of disrupting native population dynamics. Again, conservation groups like the GOERT view chemical treatments as an effective last resort. For example, metaldehyde baits are very effective, but such baits are toxic to humans and native slugs. Iron phosphate baits are less toxic than metaldehyde and carbonyl baits; however, iron phosphate degrades rapidly and must be reapplied regularly.
Wildlife in the lake mostly consists of introduced fish species. The most common fish in the lake are silver carp and grass carp but large catfish can also be found, causing concern and an issued statement that they are harmless. The freshwater jellyfish Craspedacusta
was discovered in 2008, garnering much attention for the lake. These tiny, transparent and gentle anthomedusae begin their life as polyps and develop into jellyfish only if conditions, such as purity and water temperature over 25 °C, are right. However, authorities claim that these harmless and almost invisible jellyfish have been present in the lake for over 20 years.
In 2009, scientists discovered the freshwater jellyfish, Craspedacusta
, in the waters of Lake Trevallyn close to Blackstone Heights. Believed to have been brought by migrating birds from China, the jellyfish were accidentally discovered during routine water testing. The jellyfish are non-venomous and translucent with average sizes around 2 cm across. Though introduced, the jellyfish are believed to have a beneficial impact on the area as they consume the larvae of mosquitoes. A few specimens were temporarily displayed at the QVMAG in Launceston after the discovery was made.
The most similar species to "Endothyrella plectostoma" include "Endothyrella affinis" and "Endothyrella
". "Endothyrella affinis" and "Endothyrella tricarinata" are similar to "Endothyrella plectostoma" in the narrow umbilicus. All other "Endothyrella" species of similar size have wider umbilicus. "Endothyrella plectostoma" is usually smaller, darker than "Endothyrella affinis", it has a horizontal, relatively long plica anterior to the lamella, and has the periostracal folds arranged on five spiral line. In contrast, "Endothyrella affinis" lacks the horizontal parietal plica and has four hair rows. Moreover, "Endothyrella plectostoma" has a narrower umbilicus and more elevated spire than "Endothyrella affinis".
