Thanks, Ophrys

Once I start to doubt an identification, I find it difficult to convince myself. What a useful tool this site is!

umbellifer IDs

Apart from fruits (not yet available) what can be useful in identifying umbellifers are the bracts (at the base of the umbels) and the bracteoles (at the base of the subumbels).
