Lydebrook Dingle is of national conservation importance, primarily because it supports specialist invertebrates associated with the stream that flows through the ancient woodland. Of particular importance is the rare cranefly Lipsothrix nigristigma, found in only a handful of sites in the UK. Its larvae feed on wet, rotten wood lying in fast-flowing streams.
