Hieracium lanceolatum does not occur in Britain
Keywords:Hieracium section Prenanthoidea; Hieracium prenanthoides
The status of Hieracium lanceolatum Vill. in Britain has been reviewed against the original descriptions and material from the western Alps. British plants named as H. lanceolatum show a poor match with H. lanceolatum and fit H. prenanthoides Vill. better. It is concluded that H. lanceolatum does not occur in Britain.
