Description & Remarks

A small perennial parasitic plant, occuring usually mainly in dolines on Mt. Hermon, above 1500m., but alos on stony-rocky slopes. It is the most common Orobanche in the Higher Mt Hermon above the tree line. O. camptolepis differs from all other local Orobanche species in its habitat, in its dense inflorescence of small, pale crimson to crimson flowers , and in its unconstricted (not narrowed in hte middle) flower tube.

O. camptolepis belongs to sect. Orobanche in the genus, characterized by a calyx that is split into two lateral 1-2 dentate segments, lacking lateral bracteoles.

Orobanche hermonis Mouterde that was included in the local Analiytical flora (the yellow guide), is now accepted as a synonyme of O. camptolepis, and therefore excluded from this site.
