    Micro Moth ID

    Flower for ID, Norfolk Coast

    Well, Stace 2019 uses Tristagma but Wiki uses Ipheion, and this is also the combination used by Kew - Plants of the World online?
  18. Ficedula

    Flower for ID, Norfolk Coast

    Must be it, I assumed it was smaller than that. Around here it is close to white and very star like. Possibly a garden variety like Wisley Blue?
  19. Ficedula

    Flower for ID, Norfolk Coast

    Ipheion or somewhere close but never seen it with such reflexed tepals, what size across flower? Only one species naturalised in UK - Ipheion [Tristagma] uniflorum
