Trifolium clypeatum is a characteristic species, easily identified by the expanded teeth of the fruiting calyx. It has a somewhat puzzling distribution, being common on the East Aegean islands (as well as W & S Anatolia and W Syria), but reappearing on Andros and locally in NE Peloponnisos. Trifolium is one of the largest genera of the Greek flora with c. 100 species.
