Type: Type: [India] Kumaon [Wall., Cat. 2142. 1829] R. Blinkworth (K).
Distribution: Distribution: Kashmir, N. India, Nepal.
Comment/Acknowledgements: This has a superficial resemblance to Scutellaria petiolata and Scutellaria nuristanica, but differs in the calyx (Scutellaria petiolata lacks a scutellum), habit (Scutellaria petiolata is a chasmophyte) and leaf texture (thick in Scutellaria petiolata). Scutellaria grossa has affinities with the Scutellaria albida L. – Scutellaria rubicund Hornem. Complex of the E. Mediterranean region.
