OK - I think I am happy with the above, Common Field Speedwell has pointed toothed leaves, whereas Slender has much more rounded leaves. Having seen other photos of Slender I was expecting taller flower stalks.
Now, what is the iSpot etiquette - so far I have not had an agreed o.b. so would like to delete this completely and then add two new o.b's separating the two identities is this OK?
