Francois le Danque posted a question in Plant Identification (non-cactus)So there I was, waiting for a train, a not unusual occurrence, when, out the corner of my eye, below the platform, I spied the familiar movement pattern of seed pods on long stalks, dancing in the cool breeze. I was intrigued. Upon closer inspection, it was ascertained that the offending plants were indeed of the Papaveraceae, confirming my suspicions; though my taxonomical skills weren't up to the task of delineating further the genotypic makeup of the specimens. If I were to hazard a guess, the optimist, small though he is, in me would determine them to be Papaver setigerum, though the difference in leaf structure from the usual 'somniferum is striking. Otherwise I suppose they might be Papaver rhoeas. If neither or either of these be the case, let it be known forthwith! TLDR: setigerum, rhoeas or something else? pix below
