Dianthus tymphresteus was first collected by Spruner on Mt Timfristos (“monte Velugo”). It is a tiny, more or less prostrate plant, restricted to short turf in snowbed meadows in the mountains of Sterea Ellas and N Peloponnisos. It is probably related to the widespread D. viscidus, but appears distinct, e.g., in the conspicuous purple blotches on the lower part of the petal limb.
