SOME RECENT SUFFOLK PLANT RECORDS Compiled by E. M. HYDE and F. W. SIMPSON For each record the following information is given: locality and habitat, Ordnance Survey 10 km Square, vice-county, finder's name or initials (see key at end of article) and date of record. The comments are those of the Compilers, based in some cases on information supplied by the Anders. Nomenclature and order of species are those of D. H. Kent's List ofVascular Plauts ofthe British Isles, 1992, and the New Flora ofthe British Isles, 1991, by Professor C. A. Stace. Simpson's Flora of Suffolk is used as the authority for claiming first or second County records, supplemented by the large number of records received since its publication. The Compilers wish to thank the specialists who determined or confirmed the identity of specimens, especially Mr. E. J. Clement, who has solved many problems for us over the years. We thank also all those who have contributed records for this interesting list. Native plants and established introductions Ceratophyllum submersum L., Soft Hornwort, Spineless Hornwort. Blythburgh, in the R. Wang, upstream from Wolsey Bridge, TM47, v.c. 25, JM, 1995. Det. PGL. In Suffolk, more frequent near the coast than inland. Ranunculus circinatus Sibth., Fanleaved Water-crowfoot. Tattingstone, large flowering colony in Alton Water, TM 13, v.c. 25, FWS, 6/8/1994. Formerly frequent in the County, now scarce. Not previously recorded in this reservoir. Myosurus minimus L., Mousetail. Wetherden, by public footpath above stream, west of Progress Farm, TM06, v.c. 26, RA, 29/4/1990. A good colony. Though there are very few known sites in Suffolk, the number of plants probably runs into thousands. This record was accidentally omitted from an earlier list. Salicornia ramosissima J. Woods, Purple Glasswort. Slaughden, TM45, v.c. 25, PGL and MNS, Sept. 1995. Salicornia dolichostachya Moss, Longspiked Glasswort. Slaughden, TM45, v.c. 25, PGL and MNS, Sept. 1995. Both these species are said to be common, but these are the only recent records. Silene dioica (L.) Clairv., Red Campion, a double-flowered form. Darsham Marshes, Suffolk Wildlife Trust N. R., Single plant with double flowers on the bank of the Minsmere River, TM46, v.c. 25, FWS, 23/9/1995. Found during a field meeting of the INHS. There are very few records of this double flowered form in County Floras. Rumex hybrids. Grid references and descriptive details supplied by Mr. G. Kitchener are included for the next two entries, to encourage readers to search for these rarely recorded plants. Rumex crispus L. x R. conglomeratus Murray, Curled x Clustered Dock. (R. x schulzei Hausskn.)

A rare plant in Suffolk, not previously recorded in this part of the County. Very few recent records. As H. perforatum L., Perforate St. John's-wort, is also on this reserve, we thmk it is only a matter of time before the hybrid between these two plants is found. Frankenia laevis L., Sea-heath. Boyton, Single "mat" on drier area of saltmarsh, TM34, v.c. 25, FWS, 2/8/1995. A new site for this rare Suffolk plant. Sedum telephium L., Orpine.

Torrey, the rare form with mauve flowers, TL77, v.c. 26, RBH, 1993, and for the previous 10 years, as a garden weed. Comm. Mrs. N. Chapman, Nov. 1993. Calystegia sepium (L.) R.
