? Heliotropium orientale


Annual. Leaves linear, glabrous, without veins, with few lateral flowers.


The species is based on a collection of Houttuyn from Java (Linnaeus only mentions 'Asia'). It seems to be a glabrescent specimen of Heliotropium scabrum Retz., and certainly not a member of Lithospermum, as Sprengel suggested.
