Johrenia thessala Bornm.

Johrenia thessala Bornm.

Placement status: excluded (The type and only collection (in 1896) of this enigmatic taxon (Sintenis 528, LD) is nicely collected material (2 sheets) of a large umbel in early flowering stage. Due to the lack of ripe fruits, its inclusion in Johrenia seems somewhat controversial. On the other hand, Bornmüller (1930), who described the species, had a very good knowledge of the genus and possibly his assignment of Sintenis' specimen to Johrenia is on good grounds. Efforts to rediscover the species in ''fauce Karava'' in Meteora, its locus classicus, around 1996/1997 led to the conclusion that it represents in fact a form of Pimpinella tragium (Th. Constantinidis).)
