Description & Remarks

There are at least three Plantago species with dissected leaves as in the first photograph of P. sabulosa. They differ in their habitats and in their infrutescence morphology. A diagnostic table is going to be presented in the chapter of “Plant Stories” in this website.Plantago crypsoides (formerly known as P. coronopus var. crassipes) is a plant growing in steppes and deserts and become dominant on patches of saline loessial soils. Plantago weldenii is a Mediterranean plant growing on trampled soils.
Single flowers may be recognised in ripe infrutescences of P. crypsoides and P. sabulosa; The flowers of P. weldenii are well “packed”. In previous studies of our flora P. sabulosa was not recognised and the other two taxa were recognised in a variety or subspecies level. The strong relationships of each species and its habitat and inflorescence motphology support their differentiation at the species rank.
