Abstract

Taxonomic and nomenclatural changes resulting from a revision of Greek silenoid taxa for the purposes of "Flora hellenica" are explained. Silene, redefined to include a number of smaller generic offsplits such as Cucubalus, Heliosperma, Lychnis, Melandrium, and Viscaria, is one of the major genera of the Greek flora, with 117 species presently known from the area (38 endemic). It includes several polymorphic and taxonomically problematic species groups, of which in particular those clustered around S. italica, S. radicosa, S. roemeri, S. fabaria, S. flavescens, S. saxifraga, and S. pusilla are here reappraised. New names and combinations at the ranks of species, subspecies, and variety are validated, not only in Silene but also in Agrostemma and Vaccaria.
