Mysterious nettle mystery solved. I think

I think I was mistaken in the past about the identity of a local nettle that has no sting. I thought it was Urtica urens which is very similar to dioica in leaf. There's another species I overlooked, Urtica gracilis. It was considered a variety of dioca, but is now at species status.
