Foemina Pimpernel (Lysimachia foemina)

Foemina Pimpernel (Lysimachia foemina) is one of many interesting species I found in a very small area in a valley at 320 meters altitude. A river runs through on the valley floor, supporting lots of more water demanding species, but just a few meters up the mountain slopes a rocky a harsher environment with lots of plant species dotting the landscape like a well-groomed garden.

I spent just about half a day here, but that was by far not enough.

This is a species introduced to the island by humans.

There seems to be a taxonomic confusion here, as POWO operates with two accepted names having synonyms pointing to each other, resulting in either name for same species:

Lysimachia arvensis.
Lysimachia foemina.
