Image:Silene dichotoma herbarium specimen from Ford, VC33 East Gloucestershire in 1909 by Rev. Harry Joseph Riddelsdell.
notes:The plant was in large quantity, and in two forms, both of which are here represented. The only difference which I could trace was in the size of the flowers: in one form the petals were about intermediate between those of the other form and those of Lychnis alba L which also grew close at hand.
