July 2012. Katharina Kurzrock and Matthias Geiger drove the ZFMK minibus through Germany’s North to reach Denmark, Sweden and finally Norway to collect mollusk and mayfly samples for the FREDIE project.

Lake Västra Ringsjön near Stanstorp in Sweden is a mollusc-paradise.
In Sweden we also visited the Linnean type locations around Uppsala where he had his summer domicile.
Still lucky with the weather conditions we could also collect some interesting mayflies from Norway around the skiing area of Gol.
This swampy pond next to the Furesø Lake near Farum in Denmark is another type locality we visited to collect molluscs.
