FLORA OF ICELAND elements: Alchemilla glomerulans, Clustered Lady's-mantle

Alchemilla glomerulans; the clustered lady's-mantle is one of the two most common micro species of the A. vulgaris group. Typically they have rather light coloured leaves, slightly larger than the other common micro-species of A. vulgaris being A. filicaulis. The clustered lady's-mantle is common on Iceland except for the southern coastal regions and the drier high land districts.

They are members of the Rose family (Rosaceae). The Icelandic name of this species is Hnoðmaríustakkur.
