Crassula tillaea (Mossy Stonecrop) new for Co. Wexford

 I was walking along today at Rosslare and found Mossy Stonecrop over a 30m stretch of a gravelly narrow strip which walkers use as a path. This is a new county record. Later on I popped over to the dunes to look at clovers and found the Mossy Stonecrop again (below). This time it was growing along a wide strip of bare ground. I have been expecting Mossy Stonecrop to turn up in Wexford as it was found last year at Fishguard Ferry Port, Wales. Did expect it to be found at Rosslare Ferry Port rather than at Rosslare which is 5km from the ferry port. Otherwise only known from Co. Down in Ireland.
