    Taxon info

    Pedicularis olympica was named after the Bithynian Olympus or Ulu Dağ in NW Anatolia. European plants (from the Carpathians) have been described as P. limnogena, but are scarcely different from the type of P. olympica. In Greece this species is found on Mt Voras (Kajmakčalan) and a few mountains in the north-west, growing in marshy meadows by creeks on non-calcareous substrates at 1700–2300 m. Among seven Greek species of Pedicularis, P. olympica is unique by its 1-pinnatifid leaves, straight and obtuse upper corolla lip and long capsule.A
