    Notes

    Centaurea sicula L. (non C. sicula DC., nom. illeg.) is native to Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Spain, Italy, Sicily, Sardinia and Malta and does not occur in Greece.
    Only its later homonym Centaurea sicula DC., non L. has been mentioned once for Greece, as C. sicula [DC., non L.] var. schouwii (DC.) Fiori from Rhodos (Fiori 1924: 42), but was doubted already by Rechinger (1944: 668), and the variant not even mentioned by Kleinsteuber & al. (216: 170).
    That is why we did not mention (for EAe) in VPG 2013 Centaurea solstitialis subsp. schouwii (DC.) Gugler (= Centaurea sicula subsp. schouwii (DC.) Nyman).
