On 'damp' ground. Not really marsh or bog. Sometimes grazed over by sheep.
No interactions present.
I agree with Syrphus that this seems to be a Monocot..but really can't think which one. I hope someone will pin it down soon...it's really going to annoy me!
As Syrphus says, it's doubtless something ridiculously obvious...?
My Flickr photos...
The thing that kept me awake last night was the green perianth - they looks like sepals, but monocots have petal-like sepals and at first glance these suggest a dicot (or whatever that group is called now). I can't square dicot with the triple symmetry of the carpel, though. The fruit looks like an Iris fruit. An ID, please so that I can sleep tonight!

I think you have it, Mark. A good one for the BSBI pub quiz.
The pictures at
are the best I've found to "prove" your identification.
Can sleep well, tonight! An interesting ID...I can't recall seeing Viola in seed like that, before.
