The trip went well and I was able to ID evrything so far for the wetland training for the purposes of that course, which is focused on process and not on plant ID. Unfortunately, every Ludwigia (5 sps.) we came across had identifying characteristics of flower/fruit EXCEPT the L.pilosa candidate...go figure.
I thought about being a smart-alec and merging a photo of Rhexia mariana in bloom with the L.pilosa stem, but figured that'd just be too obnoxious, so I resisted the temptation...
Anyway, the trip was great, we tromped in lots of shallow water, and I am looking forward to the training coming up in August.
