In an urn

Metalasia pulchella

Metalasia pulchella

Perhaps the most successful of all plant groups, the nearly 25000 members of family Asteraceae (or Compositae) can be found all over the world (except Antarctica). This is a South African species of genus Metalasia, first described as a Gnaphalium and apparantly known for quite some time (the use of urns on the herbarium sheets was abandoned around mid-18C).
