- We analyzed Verbascum kermanense Hub.-Mor., V. carmanicum (Bornm.) Hub.-Mor. and V. gabrielae (Bornm.) Hub.-Mor. (Scrophulariaceae) to resolve their classification using morphological traits and molecular evidence. Verbascum kermanense previously synonymized with V. gabrielae is presented as a subspecies of V. carmanicum, and V. gabrielae as a valid species based on morphological and molecular characteristics. The present article discusses morphological and hierarchical clustering analyses of key characters of these taxa, and provides their conservation status assessment and their distribution map for Iran.
