An aquatic plant (never seen one alike)

Post by MWP admin » Thu Mar 03, 2011 7:27 pm

I have some interesting plants for ID and usually I try to solve them on my own, but I am so busy atm that maybe i should take the opportunity to share them with you...

Mela, this specimen (and several othere scattered in low numbers) was found in a valley bed with shllow water. I cannot recall to see leaves of aquatic plant like that. The nearest bell was Oenanthe globulose, but when I double-checked, the segments are completely different (more linear). I wonder if you have a better bell ringing from mine.

Unfortunately, it's young and without flowers, though i have a big suspect to be an Apiaceae. I haven't researched anymuch about it.

Like pine, I have no idea. Could be something uninteresting as Ammi majus or could be something more interesting. The shape of the leaves are quite peculiar, and although not sure, it seems to be an semi-aquatic plant :roll:
