    Notes

    Endemic to continental Greece and Bulgaria, possibly extending to Albania (Strid & Tan 1991: 635, Assyov & al. 2006: 206) but contrary to what is given in Greuter & Raab-Straube (2008: 365) absent from Anatolia where it is replaced by subsp. lazistanum (Tutin & al. 1976: 390, Davis 1975: 729). 19th century records from Crete (see Rechinger 1944: 703, under H. leithneri) are considered erroneous and likely to refer to H. schmidtii (Turland & al. (1993:67).
