Hieracium cambricogothicum (Pugsley)
Great Britain: Wales
|local name: -|
extinction date: (?)
|This species was described
in the year 1948 due to a revision of the Gothic Smooth Hawkweed (Hieracium
laevigatum ssp. gothicum ((Fr.) Čelak.)), which was considered a
distinct species (Hieracium gothicum (Fr.)) at that time, and which
was split into nine new species.
The Llanfairfechan Hawkweed is known only from a tiny area within Wales, and seems to be extinct meanwhile.
