Campanula drabifolia


Antikyra, Koutros, April 17, 2012

The map shows diffusion of Campanula drabifolia.
The red arrow shows the location of Antikyra, Koutros.

This species is reported from the Acheloos Delta and its vicinity, Attica, SE Pelloponese and Elaphonisos, but it seems that it has a wider spread. The plants of the pictures were photographed on the location shown by the red arrow on the map.

Campanula andrewsii (?)

Antikyra, Vroulia Castle, April 17, 2012

This is a species of Campanula but I am uncertain if it belongs to the taxa "andrewsii", which is reportedly known only from Pelloponese. This plant may be easily confused with Campanula topaliana ssp. delphica, but it has no velvety grey leaves, nor red stems as is the case with all topaliana ssps.
Any advice will be wellcome!
