Description:

Growing on grassy verge alongside country road. Fairly long stalks, and initially considered L. pedunculatus. However, seems completely hairless. Unfortunately did not appreciate importance of bud calyx-teeth until returning home and reading Rose's guide, so no calyx-teeth pictures. However, fairly sure this is L. corniculatus.
