27-06-2011 - Stachys virgata
Stachys virgata (Lamiaceae) was known from historical collections made in Peloponnisos (Greece); the last one dated in 1844. The species was rediscovered in 2005 and subsequently documented in 18 populations (1 now extinct) with a total of 355 mature plants. Twelve populations comprise 20 plants or fewer. Maintaining at least the populations growing in private land is a key point in conserving the species.
