Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: March June.
Type: Type: Described from Europe 'Hab. in Borunia, Gedani, in montanis aequicolor' Herb. Linn. no. 836/40(LINN).
Distribution: Distribution: Europe and most of Asia; introduced elsewhere.
Comment/Acknowledgements: A very polymorphic species. Some forms with smaller flowers and less dissected leaves reach very close to the previous species but siliquae not overtopping the young flowers and buds distinguishes it. Glabrous forms seem to be quite common in Baluchistan, and may become a troublesome weed.
