Sticky Catchfly

Lluglys gludiog

Eu-dicots (True dicotyledons)
Family: Caryophyllaceae

This is the first species I have photographed this year that has a new name (Silene viscaria) in the definitive flora for the UK - Stace - New Flora of the British Isles, Third Edition.

Floralimages will update all changed names (maintaining reference to the old ones) sometime later in 2010.

At least this one has not changed family…
