Species with which Kidney Vetch (Anthyllis vulneraria) interacts

Anthyllis vulneraria

A. vulneraria is a rather interesting plant in that there are probably five sub-species growing in the UK. There is some discussion (as always) about exactly which plants are valid sspp and which are not but it's worth having a try at pinning them down as the characteristics are not too difficult to spot although it's important to look at several plants in a population before coming to a view.
