News - January 2010

I tend to add pictures as the species are submitted to me.  I am not familiar with a number of species and so far have not used herbarium specimens.  Margaret Thorne submitted pictures which we decided were M. sinuata, however, Margaret now thinks these are related to M. lyrata and I tend to agree.  She has consulted the herbarium at RBG Edinburgh on this little known species and this rather confirms the new diagnosis.  The last picture on the M. sinuata page is from Martin Walsh and this does seem to be the genuine thing.  These pages have now been changed.
