I have photographs in my archive which I identified as a Lithosporum officinale. As I have added photographs, which I found in files still remaining to be identified, i) Lithosporum officinale. I already have L. arvensis. What then is my mystery L. what a problem? The first set of photographs, which I will send this morning, are without flowers but the white pearl like fruit are fully visible. The form of the foliage is similar to that of L. officinale but with only 1 centre vein visible on the top face of the leaves. My newly found photographs of L.officinale, complete with inflorescence, are not quite the same. I am certain that it is a Boraginaceae taxa. I consulted my copy of Adriano Fiori's Iconografia Florae Italicae, which shows in the black and white illustration, that the base leaves are, as in my newly found photographs are identical, but the form of the upper leaves are identical to those in my old file. Sandro Pignatti in his 3 volume work entitled, Flora d'Italia has only 1 Lithospernum listed, not even L. arvensis is listed! I would like to make a new thread showing 2 photos of L.officinale, 2 photos of L.arvensis, and the other photographs which have become my mystery L. Can I send on my thread 1 photo each of officinale and arvensis , and the 4 or 5 photographs of L. mystery plant just for comparison.
