Contributor Text: I.C. Hedge
Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: June.
Type: Type: "Hab. in Caramania" (B - WILLD, 10951 microfiche!).
Distribution: Distribution: Kashmir to Sikkim, Indo-China, Malaysia.
Comment/Acknowledgements: The type locality is indicated as "Caramania" in the original description; on the specimen in the Willdenow herbarium the word may be read as "Carmania". The former may refer to Karaman in Turkey, the latter to the Kerman area of S Iran but neither seem likely to be the type locality, as the species is not known from anywhere near these localities. Used as a culinary herb.
