More from Rubh’ an Dùnain

Terry has sent me an image of a gall we spotted on the way back from Rubh’ an Dùnain. This is on Potentilla erecta (Tormentil) and is probably caused by the fungus, Taphrina potentillae.

Other species of interest yesterday included Anagallis tenella (Bog Pimpernel), and Polypodium interjectum (Intermediate Polypody), both new 10 km square records. We found 12 of the 18 common plants in VC104 that had not previously been recorded in NG31.
