I urge that persons using these pictures not rely solely on one source of information in the identification of plants. I usually use three different reference sources, for safety's sake. Even then, mistakes are made (primarily clerical) which could be dissastrous if you were to use only this source for identification.
If you find any errors or can fill in the missing identifyers, please contribute. I will be happy to give you credit.
