Image:Astragalus alpinus herbarium specimen from Braemar, VC92 South Aberdeenshire in 1866 by Prof John Hutton Balfour.
fruits/flowers:mature flowers
notes:Bottom left specimens
Have included Augustin Ley as Ex-Herb since that appears to be the sheet origin (top left) However the Prof G.S. West presentation in the middle right appears to confuse the issue. I'm assuming that that is connected with just the bottom right specimens collected by Prof Balfour.

Inferred details are marked.
