    Taxon info

    Jurinea taygetea is a rare local endemic of Mt Taigetos, where it was discovered by Zahn c. 1897. It grows on rocky limestone slopes at 1800–2300 m, and is a fairly distinct species in an otherwise taxonomically difficult genus. Material collected by Atchley was illustrated in Hooker’s Icones Plantarum (34: t. 3301. 1936).A
