Satureja nabateorum is described as a species new to science and illustrated. It is confined to crevices of smooth-faced sandstone in SW Jordan (Edom) and closely related to S. thymbrifolia, a species restricted to the Judean Desert and belonging to S. sect. Zatarioideae. The different ecology of both species is discussed and their distribution mapped. Ten new records of interesting plants from Edom include the southernmost record of Arbutus andrachne from the Petra area. In this context also the new combination Bituminaria bituminosa var. brachycarpa is made.
