Issue Date: 2002
Publisher: Journal of King Saud University.
Abstract: Abstract. The taxonomy of the genus Lepidium L. (Brassicaceae) in Saudi Arabia is reviewed, based on detailed field and herbarium studies. Six species have been recognized under this genus, including L. draba (=Cardaria draba (L.) Desv.), a species sometimes documented as a separate entity under the genus Cardaria Desv. The reasons for including this debatable species in the genus Lepidium are discussed in detail. All species have been enumerated with a detailed description, distribution and an identification key. L. bonariense L. (Section- Deliptium (Raf.) DC.), originally described from Brazil in 1753, is reported for the first time from Saudi Arabia
