The fen meadow near Mutišov is also the habitat of the protected common snipe (Gallinago gallinago), Jack snipe (Lymnocryptes minimus), pool frog (Pelophylax lessonae), and agile frog (Rana dalmatina). The large march grasshopper (Stethophyma grossum) also apparently likes it here.
Speaking of fauna, the site is of especial importance to spiders. Entomologists have discovered 12 species that are on the current Red List of spiders of the Czech Republic, including one that is critically endangered, three that are endangered, and eight that are near threatened.
“From the point of view of arachnology, this is an exceptionally important site, especially with regard to the presence of the critically endangered wolf spider (Pardosa maisa), which was unexpectedly detected here over 80 km away from its traditional habitats in the South Moravian salt marshes and over 40 km away from the habitat discovered this year in Podyjí National Park. Other important finds include different types of preserved wetlands species such as Centromerus levitarsis, jumping spiders (Sitticus caricis), and especially the rare ray spiders (Theridiosoma gemmosum).“
