|Ophioglossum azoricum||Ophioglossaceae||Small Adder's-tongue|
|Close Up||Habitat on Lihou Island with Bridget Ozanne||Fruiting spike|
Description - A small Adder's Tongue very difficult to distinguish from Least Adder's Tongue. However, it appears in Summer whilst Least Adder's Tongue appears in Winter.
Habitat - Coastal grassland
Comments - In Guernsey this is much rarer than Least Adder's Tongue, and is only known from a couple of sites with the largest population on Lihou Island. In the U.K. the opposite is the case: Least Adder's Tongue is only found in the Scilly Islands, this species is scattered up the West Coast as far as the Shetland Islands.
