White-flowered var.?

This is NOT a challenge.
But it does not appear to be 'cutleaved', which surely should be cut leaved?
Might is be Prunella vulgaris but white flowered?
I have been trying to identify the same plant in Orkney and will post pictures quite soon.

You'll notice, Derek, that it is now identified as vulgaris. The original observer suggested 'cut-leaved', but that was revised.
