This is a more robust subspecies of the common kidney vetch, with the terminal leaflet of the upper leaves much larger than the lower leaflets. It is found on martime cliffs and rocks along the north coast in Co.s Antrim and Londonderry, together with intermediates between it and subsp. vulneraria.

All names: Anthyllis vulneraria ssp. lapponica (N.Hylander) Jalas
