Abstract

Štěpánek, J. & J. Kirschner (2013). A revision of mountain species of the genus Taraxacum F. H. Wigg. (Asteraceae) in Corsica. Candollea 68: 29–39. In English, English and French abstracts.

Mountain species of the genus Taraxacum F. H. Wigg. (Asteraceae-Cichorieae) in Corsica were revised on the basis of a detailed study of collections used by J. L. van Soest in his first studies of the genus in Corsica, and new collections deposited at the herbarium G. Four species are recognized, all considered as endemics to Corsica. Taraxacum pomposum Štěpánek & Kirschner (sect. Fontana Soest) is described as a new species. Taraxacum renosense Soest (sect. Fontana), Taraxacum litardieri Soest (sect. Alpina Hagl.) and Taraxacum cucullatiforme Soest (sect. Alpestria (Soest) Soest) are the other taxa treated. Two names are sunk in synonymy: Taraxacum gamisansii Soest is a synonym of Taraxacum renosense, and Taraxacum corsicum Soest is synonymised with the name Taraxacum cucullatiforme. Newly compiled descriptions are given for all taxa and an identification key is provided.
