Acceptance : Accepted
Project Data     (Last Modified On 6/3/2011)
Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: April-June.
Type: Type: Described from Europe, Scandinavia.
Distribution: Distribution: Mediterranean region, Europe and Temp. Asia.; introduced else-where.
Comment/Acknowledgements: I have not seen any authentic specimen of this species from Baluchistan. Some forms of Arabidopsis pumila superficially look very much like this species in the absence of flowers, and Hotson's gathering from Makran (cited as Arabidopsis thaliana by Blatter et al in Journ. Ind. Bot. 1: 57. 1919) is most probably a misidentification of Arabidopsis pumila. It is a very variable species in size and some forms are without cauline leaves.
