    A new Belgian population of Liparis loeselii (L.) L.C.M. Rich. was found in Kallo (Beveren, Antwerp port area) in 2007. The location consists of a landfill with a sand-in-water slurry mix resulting in calcareous sandy soils with an industrial destination. Anno 2007, this is only the second location of this species in Belgium. As the Habitat Directive of the European Union strictly protects Liparis loeselii, the planned industrial development has been switched to another place and conservation measures have been prepared to conserve the population.
