Annotation: Valerianella coronata and V. pumila are traditionally discriminated as species with respect to the apparently different fruit morphology (well-developed coroniform calyx and inconspicuous sterile locules of the fruit, versus a strongly reduced calyx and inflated sterile locules). However, experimental investigations (Martin & Mathez 1991) suggest that they are morphotypes of a biological species with a genetic control of its intrapopulational fruit polymorphism as demonstrated in the closely related genus Fedia (cf. Xena de Enrech & Mathez 1998). They lack chorological and ecological differentiation, and occasionally intermediate forms are found (Thiébaud 1987). The homozygous morphotypes are maintained by the prevailing autogamy. On the Ionian Islands the pumila morphotype (classified as f. pumila by Devesa & al. 2005: 44) is reported only from Corfu (Borkowsky 1994: 125).
