Description

Taxon: Myosotis nemorosa (Synonyms: Myosotis strigulosa, Myosotis laxiflora var. scabra)
2010-07-03 Upper Austria, district Rohrbach, Mühlviertel (820 msm Quadrant 7448/4)
German name: Hain-Vergissmeinnicht
ID source: Fischer & al., Exkursionsflora für Österreich, Liechtenstein und Südtirol (2008, 3rd edition)
Remarks on ID: Differential features between this one here and very similar M. scorpioides are especially hair on leaves and stem which are growing downwards with M. nemorosa but upright or straight with M. scorpioides, according to Fischer, Exkursionsflora.
Here in Austria there are (according to Fischer) four native species of Myosotis palustris aggregate, of which M. scorpioides is by far the most common one.
However, it may well be that many finds are wrongly filed as M. scorpioides - probably many should have been ID'ed as M. nemorosa, like this one here.
Habitat: strongly acidic spruce-fir-beech forest with however spruce dominating by 80-90%
Occurrence: supposedly relatively common, however oftentimes mistaken for M. scorpioides

Description from Wikipedia

Myosotis (/ˌmaɪ.əˈsoʊtɪs/; from the Greek: "mouse's ear", after the leaf) is a genus of flowering plants in the family Boraginaceae (or Cynoglossum family) that are commonly called forget-me-nots. Its common name was calqued from the French, ne m'oubliez pas and first used in English in c. 1532. Similar names and variations are found in many languages.
