More from Muck

Michael Usher managed to find several plants on  Muck that had not been recorded since before 2000 including Dactylorhiza incarnata pulchella (Early Marsh-orchid)Dryopteris carthusiana (Narrow Buckler-Fern)Isolepis setacea (Bristle Club-rush)Myosotis scorpioides (Water Forget-me-not)Pinguicula lusitanica (Pale Butterwort) and Polypodium interjectum (Intermediate Polypody).

Furthermore, he added two species to the island list I sent him: Malva moschata (Musk-mallow) growing  associated with the hotel gardens and more pleasingly, the native Gentianella campestris (Field Gentian) – though I have since located an anonymous record for the northwest of Muck for the Gentianella and it is listed for Muck in The Botanist on Skye and Adjacent Islands.
