Herbarium specimen: Melampyrum pratense

Taxon:Scrophulariaceae: Melampyrum pratense L. ("Common Cow-wheat")
det. Charles Edward Britton 7/3/1942

Regardless of golden-yellow flowers, I think this belongs to an unpublished variety of mine. I havewhat similar plants from Wales and from Scotland all belong to var. ericitorum.
