    Taxon info

    Trifolium pignantii was discovered by Bory and Chaubard, who collected in Peloponnisos in the late 1820s as members of a major French expedition. The results were published notably in Expédition scientifique de Morée (1832) and Nouvelle flore du Péloponnèse et des Cyclades (1838), the “ancienne flore” presumably being Sibthorp and Smith’s Flora Graeca. Trifolium pignantii is a perennial woodland species, endemic to the Balkan Peninsula and sometimes gregarious along forest roads.A
