|VC104 Rare Plants Register March 2013 Edition - Updates 2013 to 2018|
Additional sites have been found for many species. For recent distribution maps see here or go to https://database.bsbi.org/maps/ enter the taxon and zoom into VC104.
Lythrum portula was found in abundance at a site in Trotternish, Skye in 2017 and so the status "Extinct?" and the comment "Not seen in VC 104 for many years" no longer apply.
Three species listed in Appendix A deserve elevation to the main list:
Lamium album has been found at Ullinish, Skye (2013) and Gallanach, Muck (2017). At least the latter is a little way from gardens etc. but is likely to have arrived through the dumping of garden rubbish.
Raphanus raphanistrum subsp. maritimus was found at Laig, Eigg and Waternish, Skye in 2015.
Three native species have been newly found in the vice-county:
Ononis repens on a roadside verge near Ose, Skye in 2013 where it is now spreading.
Saxifraga cespitosa on the Trotternish Ridge in 2014.
