More New Things

Well, Seth is keeping up the pace with Glechoma hederacea (Ground-ivy) at Uig.

This is only the sixth tetrad record post-1999 in the vice-county and probably explains an old unlocalised record by my predecessor for NG36.

Meanwhile in my garden I noticed Kuehneola uredinis (Pale Bramble Rust). My friend Paul Smith has made several records of this in the Outer Isles but this may be the first record for VC104. I bet it is elsewhere too.

Steve’s plantain gall has been confirmed as Synchytrium erieum and I notice that the only other two records on the NBN Atlas are on Lismore by Carl Farmer.
