User's notes

I have managed to key this to different species with different keys! I'm hoping someone here is more familiar with Lobelia than I am!

This is my best effort - hopefully it was one of your picks? We can forward this on to Dave albrecht if we need to

I'm not sure - the toothed leaves don't match with surrepens in the keys?

Or possibly Isotoma?

The corolla tube is split to the base, which makes it a Lobelia
