    Distribution of different subspecies in Greece unsettled so far. Plants from NE with basal leaves being subentire or showing a large terminal lobe instead of being deeply pinnatifid as in J. vulgaris subsp. vulgaris were identified as J. vulgaris subsp. gotlandica (Neuman) B. Nord., a steppic element with a pontic-pannonian range extending to the islands of Öland and Gotland in eastern Sweden. It possibly deserves species rank due to genetic discontinuities with J. vulgaris subsp. vulgaris (Wysk & al. 2009). Similar collections have been seen from SPi and NPi (B!, Th. Raus).
