Moerckia hibernica (Hook.) Gottsche

Moerckia hibernica (Irish Ruffwort)
Here is an image of female plants of Moerckia hibernica photographed on the ridge north of Sron Chona Choirean, Stuchd an Lochain, Perthshire on 17 September 2019, in a Sphagnum-dominated flush at 810 m, in a site where it was first discovered on the Killin BBS meeting in 2014.
M. hibernica is much less common than its relative M. flotowiana being found in neutral Sphagnum-dominated flushes, whereas the latter prefers much richer fen and dune slack habitats.
