Description:

I believe this is Three-lobed Crowfoot, which is mainly found in south-west England and south Wales. I've also been told that it's on the IUCN Red List as endangered... can anyone confirm that?

Hi ar8922 Nice

Hi ar8922
Nice observation!!
I did not find tripartitus on the red list.

The red list is updated continuously thanks to a great team at Kew Gardens so it is advisable to look at the last time a record was updated when you are researching the list :-)

Keep them coming!

Thanks Isabel

Thanks Isabel, that's pretty conclusive then.

Interestingly, some websites, such as plantlife.org.uk do list it as endangered and the Countryside Council for Wales website states that it was on the IUCN red list in 2001 and in the GB Red Data Book 2007 but that may well not be correct and as you say, it's the current list that's most valid.

The fact that hardly anyone has agreed with the ID so far (albeit without a flower to help), would suggest that it's quite unusual.
