Scientific Name Cerastium semidecandrum L.
Recorder Rob Randall
Record Status Confirmed
Identifier Rob Randall
Identified on 07/05/2019
Location ST707688
Locality Little Down Camp, Lansdown
Parish North Stoke
Habitat Very short turf over thin soil by FP just below the camp.
Notes It is called Scarious Mouse-ear because the bracts just below the flower-stalks are papery rather than leafy. This is a character that helps distinguish it from similar plants like the Sticky Mouse-ear and Sea Mouse-ear.
