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.

No date and site illegible - though I was tempted to read Bournemouth or Barmouth.

I now read the date as1991. Benson collected on the N Wales coast that summer and http://herbariaunited.org/specimen/237225/ from Barmouth may be relevant.

More likely 1891!

This is not B. oleracea - look at the upper stem leaves. Isn't it B. cheiranthus as suggested by curator?

The lifespan for Edwin Bernard Benson was 1858-1940, and he was a younger brother of Richard de Gylpyn Benson (18561904). The latter is one of the subjects of Bygone Bryologists [pdf] by Mark Lawley.
