Its Burdock Season

The burdocks are back in bloom and its time to pick up where I left off last year. Hopefully, Wood Burdock (Arctium nemorosum) won't elude me much longer.

That said there is no doubt in my mind that Arctium pubens (please someone give it a common name) is very under-recorded and Wood Burdock and Lesser Burdock (Arctium minus sens. str.) are probably massively over-recorded. I find the former to be the most common Burdock in both VC31 and 64. More records please.
