Contributor Text: I.C. Hedge
Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: May-June.
Type: Lectotype (Rechinger l.c. 397): Afghanistan, "in regno Cabulico", Griffith 463 (K).
Distribution: Distribution: NE Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Pamir-Alai, NW India.
Comment/Acknowledgements: An unmistakable species with its very dense stellate-dendroid indumentum and small corollas. Although Vvedensky created the independent genus Phlomidoschema for his main reason being the supposedly included (in the corolla tube) stamens, I prefer to regard it as a somewhat unusual member of the protean Stachys.
