Designated by: Pujadas & al. in Bot. J. Linn. Soc.148: 118 (2005).

Host: exclusively on Centaurea species, s.l. [Centaurea aspera L. (habitually), C. hyssopifolia Vahl, C. ornata Willd., C. pullata L., etc. and perhaps also on Rhaponticoides linaresii (Lázaro Ibiza) M.V. Agab. & Greuter ( Centaurea linaresii Lázaro Ibiza)], Asteraceae [Compositae] (Annotated Checklist of Host Plants of Orobanchaceae, accessed Apr 2010). In addition, we would also like to point out that all the evidences suggested that Pau mistook the host plant (Pau 1889: 6, sub O. icterica).

Comments:

Taxonomic observations: Orobanche leptantha Pomel [O. curvata Pomel; O. icterica Pau], Orobanche loscosii L. Carlón & al. [O. ritro auct.], Orobanche kochii F.W. Schultz [O. ritro Gren.] and Orobanche elatior Sutton are considered conspecific by many authors (e.g., Chater & Webb 1972: 292; Greuter & al. 1989: 260; Foley 2001: 71). But in our taxonomic treatment we have preferred to consider these taxa as different species, which have different morphological characters and, frequently, different host plants.

Phylogenetic observations: Carlón & al. in Documentos Jard. Bot. Atlántico (Gijón) 6: 13 f. 2 ["Phylogenetic relationships"], 15 [EU655618: Spain, herb. Sánchez Pedraja 11870, sub O. elatior, s.l.; EU655619: Spain, herb. Sánchez Pedraja 12239, sub O. elatior, s.l.] (2008).
