Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per. : April-June.
Type: Type: Described from Europe, 'Hab. in Orientale'.
Distribution: Distribution: Europe, C and S.W. Asia, Pakistan and Kashmir.
Comment/Acknowledgements: Smaller pedicels, 3-6 mm long, and different leaf lobes distinguishes it from the previous species. A variable species in hairiness and S. dagestanicum Vas. with somewhat rigid hairs, is not different from it. It seems to be rare in our area.
