Perfoliate Alexanders New to Huntingdonshire

Jessica Hatchett of the Wildlife Trust has sent news of a recent find of Perfoliate Alexanders (Smyrnium perfoliatum) when surveying Coppingford Lane (VC31). This is a surprising location for the first VC record of this species given, with the exception of a nearby farm, it is distant from habitation.

This species is scarcely recorded away from the Greater London area where it can be very abundant, but there are a few records for Cambridgeshire.
