var. albiflorum

Finally found the article you mentioned cicuta, interesting that it has been given a name but 'isn't worthy of species recognition' I certainly have never come across this variation before. Maybe it's commoner in other districts.

Varieties

That's the delight of varieties. They are worth a name but not at species level. Forms come even lower!
