Female (no upcoiled tip of abdomen); long snout clearly visible. Somewhat weak-flying. Found in a moist thicket.
Spreading in open weedy thicket along trail. Fruit hooked-bristly with a short, stubby beak. Crushed leaves with a sort of "sweet parsley" scent; did not try tasting it, but assumed edible.
According to the USDA website, the only Ohio record for this plant is from Ottawa County.
