  • Comment on (A): Dipsacus fullonum L., fuller's teasel, Wilde Karde

    Cf. Förster (1917,136). The source for HA CLVI is Dioskorides III,10; the 'white chamaileon' described there denotes the Mediterranean plant Atractylis gummifera L., Mastixdistel (cf. Berendes 1902,268). DeVriend (1984,323) suggests Carlina acaulis L., stemless carline thistle, Große Eberwurz on the basis that "The medicinal properties of CAMELLON ALBA are very similar to those of Carlina acaulis in modern herbals". D'Aronco (1998,54) suggests Carlina vulgaris L, common carline thistle, Gewöhnliche Golddistel.
