Wildflowers of Mt Majura updated

We went for a walk on Mt Majura Nature Reserve today and saw quite a few species there for the first time.

Of greatest interest I found the above Ophioglossum lusitanicum (Ophioglossaceae), which I would never have expected. It is tiny and thus easily overlooked. Unusually (although admittedly not uniquely) for its group this species tends to have several leaves at the same time.

I took the opportunity to update the Wildflowers of Mt Majura post on this blog.
