Sterilis

Thanks to both for amended ID. Agree that the sepal being as long as or longer than the petal, and being clearly visible between petals, are clear indicators of Sterilis. Frustratingly, none of the other diagnostic features were outlined in "Rose" which also seems to place much emphasis on the relative size of the terminal tooth - thanks for your pointers to future IDs.
