Thank you

That does look quite different to all the others I've seen - the leaves especially. (But I can't figure out the forward-pointing stipule teeth bit - is it visible in the pictures?)

stipules are visible - but

stipules are visible - but better on the original where I can blow it up large - doesn't show so well here. At the base of the big leaf where it joins the stem the stiplue sticks up at an angle of about 5 past the hour - the teeth are just visible
