the hair made me think it may be another species than E. verna. I'd key it out with e.g. Stace 3 (and a hand lens for hair shape). The taxonomy within Erophila has changed a lots of times and I'm not uptodate.

Crucifers! arrrgh!

I'm never confident with them. I need a crucifer workshop! :)

Tim,

Sorry, have I offended you by my title change in recognition of your identification? Many thanks for your pointers; I have no doubt over your expertise, and by examining other web-sites, I have since seen the differences between the various sub-species you mentioned, so a useful learning exercise for me. I appreciate that my adding an "Agreement" to your ID is of little real value, given your standing, but I am of course more than happy to do so.

Regards,

John
