Utricularia australis (Bladderwort) first county record since 1937

 Frankie Tennant asked me today to come over and look at a bladderwort for him, which he had found on South Slob. Looking at the glands in the spur this has to be Utricularia australis (Bladderwort), which was last reported from the county in 1937. It was common in the drains on the slobs.
