    1. Reviewed by Trent Draper    Jan 21, 2006

    Action: changed name from "Plantago patagonica" to "Plantago ovata "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "The bracts which subtend the flowers in this picture are ovate not linear. Bracts of Plantago patagonica are linear. P. ovata bracts have a scarious margin with a green midrib (as on this plant) giving the false appearance of a linear bract."
