notes:main specimen is Barbarea vulgaris, whose stuck-on label may
give location, appears to say [le bord de sesses, les vraiues du
cote de darnetal asul et mai]; on reverse of sheet is data for
Polygala vulgaris, but the specimen is largely missing - the
sheet was clearly re-used for the Barbarea specimen;
additionally, the reverse side of the sheet also has a small
printed label at the top with 'Ex Coll. W. Dubuc'; darker blue
sheet, 'Edinburgh University Herbarium' stamp (on the Barbarea
specimen side).

Inferred details are marked.
