Title: Asterolinon linum-stellatum (Primulaceae) in Hungary
Year: 2014
Volume: 45
Pages: 107-111.

Abstract: The first report of Asterolinon linum-stellatum from Hungary is provided, based on a specimen that was collected by Gyula Tauscher at Tarnaörs (North Hungary) in 1863, and its voucher was recently found in the BP herbarium. There is little chance of erroneous labelling, or accidental introduction of the species, thus the specimen most likely represents a small native outlying population several hundred kilometres from the continuous distribution of the species. The natural habitats of the Tarnaörs region had been completely destroyed over a hundred years ago and in lack of a subsequent confirmation of the plant’s occurrence, the taxon should be treated as an extinct member of the Hungarian flora.
