The Acaena inermis at Waternish has now done what I wanted:

This Burdock at Eabost is Arctium minus subsp. pubens (Lesser Burdock) – thanks, Mike.

This seems to be our common taxon, though more work is needed.

I forgot to include Lycopodium clavatum (Stag’s-horn Clubmoss) in the list of plants found by the Allt Coire nan Clach:

It occurred to me that this was in a situation similar to that of quite a few L. clavatum records on Skye i.e. on a mossy/heathery bank set back from a burn and present in small numbers, such that I quite possibly miss it when walking along burns with my attention  focused on the burn and its immediate vicinity.
