[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Myosotis atlantica is a perennial plant to the family Boraginaceae. This taxon is endemic to the high mountain systems of Morocco. It is distinct from the other species of this group as all its leaves are pilose with long soft nearly straight hairs on both surfaces, calyx rounded at the base in fruit, with white straight hairs forming conspic- uous white rim at the margin of calyx teeth and with longer, patent, slightly curved hairs and hooked ones on the calyx tube extending halfway up the pedicel. Patent hooked hairs on the flower/fruit pedicels is a noteworthy morphological character, which occurs very rarely within the M. alpestris group. Source
