Comment/Acknowledgements: This and the following species are similar to members of subgenus Anaspis (Rech. f.) Juz. (cf. Rechinger, Fl. Iran. 150: 81-82. 1982 and Juzepczuk, Fl. URSS 20: 207-217. 1954). To these species, recognized by the form of the mature calyx and the nutlet indumentum, may be added Scutellaria fragillima Rech. f. from S. Iran, Scutellaria tibetica Wu & Li and Scutellaria kingiana Prain, both from Tibet.
