Author's notes

Going with P. aneba here as these looked very similar to sighting 3387190. Flowers were all 25-30mm - none of the flowering stems were more than 150-200mm tall. Majority of plants (about 80%) were finishing up or finished flowering. By comparison the plants at 3387190 have all finished now - visited that site yesterday. Glen
