One of the many lovely wild flowers of the limestone landcape, The Burran, County Clare in Ireland.
No interactions present.
Didn't spot this when I was there many years ago.Dryas octopetala was a highlight,also Gentiana verna growing by the water tap on a farm campsite.This is on my list of return visits to come someday.
What is it about this species which makes an ID possible from this photo? Is it a vegetative feature or is this the only species which grows there, perhaps?
My Flickr photos...
As you will see from my revision above, a firm ID is not possible.
E. salisburgensis is a very nice little species, but it is only locally common on the Burren - less so than a few other species. The photograph here is not it!
N.B. Euphrasia is a very critical genus and people should be very careful about adding agreements unless they are really sure!
Sorry for my contribution to misidentification... ID reference was a Guide book to the wild flowers of the Burren. In my ignorance, I took this to be the one in the book. My daughter has a photo of it too, will see if I can upload that when she returns from her Field Study Course next week. It may be a clearer picture.
You posted a nice picture!
True E. salisburgensis has very narrow leaves with remote teeth, and the whole plant often goes a coppery colour.
Even on the Burren it takes some searching for and I have seen quite a bit of wrongly named herbarium material.
