    Taxon info

    Minuartia stellata forms extensive, very dense, fresh-green mats over steep, rocky limestone slopes in mountains of Peloponnisos, S mainland Greece and S Albania. It was discovered on Mt Parnassos in 1801 by the British traveller E. D. Clarke, who subsequently described it as Cherleria stellata: “A new species of Cherleria, whose short, half-shrubby stems divided outwards into innumerable branchlets, terminated in little stars of leaves”.A
