Common Duckweed

This grows in the ditches down on the reserve at Lewes Brooks. It's Common Duckweed, Lemna minor. There are other Lemnas...Greater, Rootless, Least, Fat and Ivy-leaved. So you don't have to settle on this one. But you do need to get up close to discern them. Minor has three veins but minuta (Least) only has one.
