4. Geranium mascatense Boiss., Diagn. Pl. Or. Nov. Ser. 1, 1:59. 1842. Boiss., Fl. Or. 1:882.1867; Schonbeck-Temesy, l.c. 34.


  • Geranium ocellatum var. persicum Pau

    Similar to Geranium ocellatum in habit, but differs in the larger (up to 3 mm long), transverse, deeply furrowed and puberulous mericarps.

    Fl. Per.: March-April.

    Type: ‘in monte Gebel Akadar regni Mascate’ Aucher-Eloy 4303 (G, iso. K!).

    Distribution: NE. Africa, Egypt, Arabia, S.W. Iran and Baluchistan. Sparingly recorded from Pakistan. It is very close to Geranium ocellatum but also bears some resemblance to Geranium molle and Geranium divaricatum; it can be distinguished from the former by the puberulous mericarps and latter by the entire petals.
