2. Solenanthus stamineus (Desf.) Wettst in Denkschr. Akad. Wise. Wien. 50(2): 88. 1885. Brand, Pflanzenr. iv. 252:155.1921; M. Popov in Schischldn, Fl. URSS. 19:652.1953; Riedl in Rech. f., Fl. Iran. 48:133.1967; Kazmi, 1.c. 134.


  • Cynoglossum stamineum Desf.
  • Solenanthus conglobatus DC.
  • Solenanthus strictissimus Brand
  • Solenanthus tournefortii DC.

    Resembling the previous species but differing in the narrower leaves, the gradually tapering petioles and stem leaves not sheathing.

    Fl. Per.: May June.

    Type: Turkey Cappadocia, Tournefort s.n. (P).

    The species according to Kazmi (l.c. 135) has also been coriseted from Gilgit and Hazara (NWFP). The anther size varies from 0.5-1 mm, and is not appreciably larger than in Solenanthus circinnatus. I have examined the type material of Solenanthus strictissimus (Gilgit expedition, Giles in Herb. Griffith 5980, E). I agree with Kazmi’s view (l.c.) in considering Solenanthus strictissimus as identical with Solenanthus stamineus.
