ocrnotes:Pyrethrum corymbosum, W. On the quay, Bangor, where it has been established eight or ten years, 20th August, 18S7.--J. E. Griffith. " I named this plant for Mr. Griffith with some hesitation, as it has a much more condensed inflorescence than the ordinary continental species. It is the stunted inflorescence, and the absence of the ray florets, which have led to its being passed over as Tanacetum vulgare. As far as I know, it has not previously been recorded amongst aliens in Britain,"-- Charles Bailey.
Filing note:BEC Report 1887
