N.B. reporting of the edit history is currently fairly unclear and misleading. Most edits made to specimens appear as a pair of 'add' and 'delete' entries, which may not be together in the list. There are also often 'minor' edits, which are made automatically (rather than due to user activity), for example to merge synonym names.

Locality may be wrong. Is Babington the collector?

See Babington's Journal for that date!

NOT Llyn y Cwn!

Babington's Journal for 15 August 1862 clearly states Llyn-y-Cwm, and says that he also found Isoetes echinospora "in the smaller lake". This suggests Cwm Glas with its larger Llyn Glas and smaller Llyn Bach. This would have been a climb of about 600m, and a round trip of at least 10km, hence Mr Gay's fatigue.

Yes, thankyou and sorry about that. I now see Llyn Bach on the map where you describe, zooming in.
