Guizotia scabra ssp. schimperi new alien for Wexford and Ireland
Yesterday I revisited the plant I had recorded as Guizotia abyssinica (Niger) a few days earlier at Screen and sure enough it was a very sticky plant. I had found a new alien to Ireland. I checked on my other record for Niger near Campile and this one was Guizotia abyssinica (Niger).
I now wonder how often plants have been named as Guizotia abyssinica (Niger) when really they were G. scabra.
Also at Screen on on the small area of rough ground were two plants of Ammi majus (Bullwort) (see lower down).
