Image:Melampyrum pratense herbarium specimen from Dunbeath, VC109 Caithness in 1888 by Rev. Edward Francis Linton.
fruits/flowers:mature flowers
notes:Hairy form. This plant was so hairy in its upper parts that I took it, at first, for M ericetorum. The hirsuteness, however, in my plant is much softer, and does not cover the stem and branches to the same extent as in M ericetorum, Oliver. The Rev WR Linton has come across the same hairy form as the Dunbeath plant, in Derbyshire. - E F Linton
Filing note:Melampyrum pratense varieties
