Origin of depicted specimens: Italy, Abruzzi, Maiella Mt., Bocca di Valle W of Guardiagrele, 750 m, limestone, collected by myself July 31, 1993. This is the typus site. The taxonomical classification and geographical distribution of this newly detected species isn't yet definitely cleared. Note the P. vulgaris-like leaves and the large and strong calyx which distinguishes this species from P. longifolia subsp. reichenbachiana erroneously indicated from the Abruzzi region by some authors.
