7. Nepeta subincisa Benth. in DC., Prodr. 12: 373. 1848. Rech. f., Fl. Iran. 150: 119. 1982.

I.C. Hedge

  • Nepeta elliptica* auctt. p.p. non Benth.: Hedge & Lamond
  • Nepeta podostachys** auctt. p.p. non Benth.: Hedge & Lamond

    Similar to Nepeta paulsenii in habit, inflorescence, bract, calyx and corolla characters, but with a denser villous indumentums and ovate-triangular leaves, c. 10 x 8 mm, with a serrate or subpectinate margin.

    Fl. Per.: June-July.

    Holotype: [Afghanistan, Bamian, Erak] In regno Cabulico, Griffith (K!).

    Distribution: Afghanistan and adjacent areas of Pakistan.

    This is a widespread taxon in Afghanistan known from a larger number of gatherings. In following Rechinger (l.c.) by recognizing it at specific rank, I was influenced by the relative constancy of the afghan specimens as regards leaf shape and serration. But it is very close to Nepeta paulsenii, Nepeta Podostachys and Nepeta elliptica.
