The capitulum of Pietrosia levitomentosa Nyar.

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, an area of about 400 ha in Eastern Carpathians - Romania and the second one appears to be in the Ukrainian Carpathians (Kricsfalusy & Budnikov 2007; Negrea & Pricop, 2009).

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; Negrea & Pricop, 2009).

Imi place fotografia ta... imi place ideea de a prezenta o nota interesanta despre ea...cred ca ar trebui sa continui cu acest mod de a prezenta lucruri interesante despre endemismele din Romania. Felicitari!
