plantago major

  1. Thanks Katie, these pressed nicely! I am attaching the third one you made here. You would want to include a little more information on the labels, about the location, and perhaps the habitat and for the scientific name you want to include genus + specific epithet and the author of the plant name. So Plantago major L., it is one of those plants that Linnaeus described, so you always want to use the author behind the specific epithet. Often times people also indicated their collecting number behind their name, so if it is your first collection you would write Katie Gilliam 1, etc. Nice job!
