Prosser, F. & Bertolli, A. 2007: A new subspecies of Guenthera repanda (Brassicaceae) from Mt Baldo (SE Prealps, Italy).
Willdenowia 37: 191-198.

Guenthera repanda (= Brassica repanda) was discovered on Mt Baldo (SE Prealps, Italy). Comparisons with the known subspecies confirmed that the Mt Baldo populations represents a new taxon, here described as subsp. baldensis. The new subspecies has the closest morphological affinities to subspecies of the eastern Iberian Peninsula and not to the three subspecies known from the Alps and NE Italy. Data on the local distribution and ecology of the new taxon are reported.

Key words
Cruciferae, Brassica repanda, Guenthera repanda subsp. baldensis, Mt Cimo, xerothermic refuge.
