Chenopodium polyspermum (Many-seeded Goosefoot) new species for Wexford

 Yesterday I was recording at Mackmine and came across one plant of Many-seeded Goosefoot on rough ground. This is the first record for the county. A very rare species in Ireland. Known from around the shore of Lough Neagh and recorded once from waste ground in Waterford.

There is a dot on the BSBI DDb map for Wexford from Rosslare, this is an error, the record is supported by a specimen in the herbarium at Glasnevin, this has been renamed as Sea-beet.

A species I used to see often when recording in Somerset.
