I haven't time to delve deep into this but from Haslam, R. pulcher would fit. Additionally, 'obtusifolius' means wide leaf and using visual logic, (not botanical evaluation) the leavs do not look very wide. We wait the experts...

I think you are right, sir MWP!
However, we await the experts!

I have found a plant like yours but the teeth were less than 1mm while yours look longer... do you confirm? Saying so becasue flora europae divides two bulky groups of Rumex from the length of the teeth of the valves.

My specimen is also under investigation, but on the first round it is neither R.pulcher nor R.obtusifolius :roll:

well yes they were more than 1mm in size (exactly no idea but).
however I still need to re-examine my Rumex species.

My specimen is Rumex cristatus, though I have to check other floras to be sure. Yours could be the same apart from the hypothetical R. pulcher.
