Valerianella rimosa (Broad-fruited Cornsalad) at a new site in Wexford

 Broad-fruited Cornsalad is a rare species in Ireland these days. This is the first record in Wexford for 6 years, and only the 5th site for the county. There was just the one plant on some disturbed ground.
 The stem leaves are much more toothed and larger than that of Common Cornsalad.
 Can just make out the plant in the above photo. Below is a photo of the site, the rough ground between the road and the ditch.
