Nepeta sibthorpii Bentham (Lamiaceae) is an herbaceous aromatic plant, growing in dry, usually rocky areas of Southern Greece. In this paper, we report the study of micromorphological features of the flowers and leaves of Nepeta sibthorpii Bentham. The analysis by means of scanning electron microscppy has permitted to characterize both the covering trichomatous garment, abundantly present on the calyx and on the leaves, and the glandular hairs, distributed on the adaxial leaf surface and on the outer surfaces of calyx and corolla, showing also the peculiar features of the epidermal cells, all useful diagnostic elements for the identification of this medicinal plant.

Abstract

Nepeta sibthorpii Bentham (Lamiaceae) is an herbaceous aromatic plant, growing in dry, usually rocky areas of Southern Greece. In this paper, we report the study of micromorphological features of the flowers and leaves of Nepeta sibthorpii Bentham. The analysis by means of scanning electron microscppy has permitted to characterize both the covering trichomatous garment, abundantly present on the calyx and on the leaves, and the glandular hairs, distributed on the adaxial leaf surface and on the outer surfaces of calyx and corolla, showing also the peculiar features of the epidermal cells, all useful diagnostic elements for the identification of this medicinal plant.
