|Rumex crispus subsp. littoreus|
We also saw a couple of large clumps of Scrophularia auriculata, Water Figwort, with its obtuse, rounded leaves still green and the wings on the stems, though withered, still very much in evidence. It is strangely uncommon in West Wales, having a south-easterly distribution in Britain.
The tetrad SN79E had no previous records and the hectad [which is only just in Merioneth] had only 39 records so we were pleased to make a good list, adding another 60 species. It definitely deserves a return visit in the summer: judging by the number of new records for the hectad, that area had never been visited before.
