    Notes

    Named after its locus classicus Sermeniko (Σερμένικο, the former Turkish Sirminik, since 1928 called Filakti/Φυλακτή), a village near Karditsa (SPi). The original spelling “sermonikense” of the epithet in the protologue of 1897 (documented in IPNI 2012–) is considered an orthographical error according to ICN Art. 60.1 (McNeill & al. 2012) and has to be corrected to sermenikense as implemented in basic floristic literature already five years afterwards (Halácsy 1902) and ever since (Tutin & al. 1976: 408, Greuter & Raab-Straube 2008: 453).
