Strange flower for ID

Observed: 8th June 2012 By: Thomas _J_Plant

Found this plant on Handa Island, spent a great deal of time looking for it in plant ID books with no luck. If anyone could help that would be brilliant!

Species with which Geum interacts

I agree with landgirl, Geum rivale sometimes produces weird aberrations like this. The colour shows no sign of G. urbanum.

Thank you!

Thanks everyone for the helpful information and the ID.

Take a look at my recent posting
There is fair evidence that this is not a hybrid but some form of mutation.
A local expert here suggests chemical intervention from herbicide spraying.
My low level web research suggests that there is too little similarity (in appearance) to Geum urbanum for it to be a cross.
Make certain you read the comments in my post.
