Comments: See discussion of this name by Stearn (in Geck & Pressler, Festschr. Claus Nissen: 640-641. 1974). Di Pietro & al. (in Taxon 62: 635-637. 2013) proposed the conservation of P. serpentina All. against P. strictissima but this was not recommended by the Committee for Vascular Plants (see Taxon 63: 1364-1365. 2014). As part of their proposal, these authors designated a collection from Italy (Piemonte) as a neotype for Linnaeus' name.
