There are three sub species of Vicia sativa and ssp segetalis is supposed to be the commonest of the three having comparatively broad leaflets and bi coloured flowers.

Vicia sativa ssp segetalis is very common in England and Wales but records diminish as you go north into Scotland where there is plenty in the south and around Inverness but little elsewhere. In Ireland it is mostly found in the south.
