Steve’s June Records

Steve has sent over 860 Skye records from June including many interesting additions, such as X Dactylodenia st-quintinii (Gymnadenia borealis x Dactylorhiza fuchsii) near Torrin, Dactylorhiza traunsteinerioides (Narrow-leaved Marsh-orchid) with unmarked leaves from Coire-chatachan and Baldellia ranunculoides (Lesser Water-plantain) from the Broadford River downstream from its known location in Loch Cill Chriosd.

He also passed on some records from Tim, including a new site near Calligary for Cephalanthera longifolia (Narrow-leaved Helleborine). This is not far from a known site but five days later the single plant had disappeared.

    V. interesting. Is there a picture of the hybrid? Presumably both parents were nearby. The unspotted D.t sounds like the plants in N. Yorks. Was it just an aberration?

  2. Stephen Says:

    Don’t know re photo – will ask – and unspotted leaves appears to apply to population of 10. we had some with very slightly spotted leaves last year. Will find out more…..
