Changed my agreement to S. auriculata. Went on unwinged stems at first, but broad papery edge to sepals has changed my mind. May be other species in Europe for all I know!

Even in Britain ...

... there is Scrophularia umbrosa.

Really ? Thats quite interesting I have never come across it - is it confined to a particular latitude ?

Scrophularia umbrosa ...

... (if that's what you're asking about) is described by Streeter as "rare and local". I've never seen it. I have seen Scrophularia vernalis once - in woodland at Threave Gardens in Kirkcudbrightshire.

These were the alternatives I

These were the alternatives I 've found: S. alpestris, but leave is different; S. Scorodonia, but sepals very different; S. nodosa, but structure stem is different (also capsule's shape...); S. balbisii, but bracteas are different and ratio length/width of stamina and finally S. auriculata, where all descriptions fit except that is was not close to water, but we had about 1 month havy rains and this plant was on the lowest part of a road wher water could have been accumulated...
