great pics for ID

Go back later when they've seeded and you'll why the name and also try and work out what they are parasitising on.

I didn't select angustifolius

I didn't select angustifolius because we should see 2 small teeths on border of top petal (more than 1 mm) and I have no details of the corolla tube (to see if straight or curved)...

I have added a new picture

I have added a new picture showing the straight corola tube, but I can't see any description in spanish flower book and in a French one it says the opposite of Tim Rich = if straight = minor...
I thought the length of teeths was also relevant, but I am not sure anymore.

Tim Rich's picture

new picture clear - the upper

new picture clear - the upper side is curved, lower side is straight = angustifolius

I get description from French

I get description from French book, and I think now Tim is right: shape of upper petal, length of teeth, closed throat...

Thanks
