Pietrosia levitomentosa Nyar. and its natural habitat.

Pietrosia levitomentosa Nyárády ex Sennikov is a plant species belonging to the Family Asteraceae, is known as endemic for Romania (Nyárády 1963) and for Europe (Sell 1976). P. levitomentosa is known in the world from only two geographical locations, the first one is a mountain area Pietrosul Bistriței - Bogolin (Figure 1 - b, d), an area of about 400 ha in Eastern Carpathians - Romania and the second one appears to be in the Ukrainian Carpathians (Kricsfalusy & Budnikov 2007).
The species has also been refered to: Pietrosia levitomentosa (Nyárády 1963, 1965; Stefureac 1968; Sennikov 1999; Negrean 2004), Andryala levitomentosa (Nyárády 1963, 1965; Sell 1976ab), or Hieracium levitomentosum(Soo 1968). If the name of Pietrosia levitomentosa Nyárády ex Sennikov were to prefer, then the taxon would also be a generic endemism (Stefureac 1968; Negrean 2004).

Salut Emilian,
frumos peisaj si o planta interesanta.
Se pare ca si la voi vremea este foarte rea.
O seara buna,

Buna Emilian
Ma bucur foarte mult sa vad pe TN pt prima data aceasta specie, de altfel draga mie.Am citit si articolul de pe Bioflux si ma bucur sa aud ca aceasta specie supravietuieste. Frumoasa aceasta fotografie, care arata mediul in care planta creste.
Numai bine, Oana
