Fam:   Asteraceae (Compositae)
Genus:   Cota J. Gay
Species: Cota triumfettii (L.) J. Gay
English Name: not found common name


Perennial plant. Rhizome short, vertical, brown with numerous lateral roots. Stems single to few, in the upper part thyroid-branched, (30) 60 -90 cm high, green to brown-green, dense to dilute simple white fibrous (rarely to almost glabrous), thin dark longitudinally ribbed, leafy to the petioles of the baskets . Leaves outline ovate-elliptic, sessile, up to 13 - 14 cm long, with diluted lying down gray simple hairs to almost naked, deeply divided into 3 - 7 pairs of oblong, short-pointed, pointed, serrated to double-feathery flat shares. Baskets hemispherical, 20 - 40 (50) mm in diameter, the disc (12) 15 - 18 mm in diameter, single on the tops of stems and twigs on long 5 - 20 cm petioles, in fruit ripening not thickened. The wrap at the base is concave to varying degrees; cover leaves gray-green; outer oblong-elliptic to linearly triangular, sharply pointed tips; tips and middle veins greenish or dark brown, membranous at the edge, pointed to ciliated; middle and inner linearly elliptical, greenish or brown at the edge; middle veins green-brown, just fibrous, on the edge filed to ciliated. Tongue flowers white, rarely white-greenish or absent, tongues 1 - 1.8 (2.0) cm long; tubular numerous, yellow, wreath tube at base is not broadened. Bracts oblong-lance, suddenly narrowed into an elongated pointed tip, membranous at the edge, slightly longer than the tubular flowers. Fruits wedge-shaped back pyramidal, rhombic in cross section, 1.8 - 2 cm long, brown to light brown, with 2 wider and 2 - 4 (5) intermediate, obscure edges; crown clearly developed, at (1/4) 1/3 - 1/2 of the length of the seed, hair, cut serrated, membranous cartilaginous, brownish.


Var. triumphetti. The tongue blossoms are white. Western border mountains (Osogovo mountain).
Var. discoidea (All.) Kuzmanov & Ch. Gussev. comb, nova .; Chamaemelum discoideum All., Fl. Pedem. 1 (1785) 188. The tongue blossoms undeveloped, tongues missing. Urdina mountain (Daschan well), Rila (Dupnitsa).

There is a range of forms with white tongue flowers in three species, considered by a number of authors with different taxonomic status, sometimes within 1 lineon - Cota tinctoria: C. tinctoria var. pallida, C. triumfetti (differs from the previous one in the height and branching of the stem and especially in the flat, grassy green, unfolded leaves; along the tongue of the radial flowers and sharply narrowed bracts) and C. parnassica (the stem is lower, recumbent or ascending, the leaflets obtuse; the bracts sharply narrowed). More detailed studies of this range of related forms, including experimental ones, may show the reasons for the mixing of transitions (cf. Grierson, 1975).

Cota triumfettii er en flerårig urt i kurvplantefamilien.
Den ligner på gul gåseblom, men har hvite randkroner. Bladene er mindre hårete under, og bladflikene er ofte dypere innskåret. Arten vokser i submediterran skog sammen med blant europahumlebøk og duneik. Cota triumfettii er utbredt i Sør-Europa og Vest-Asia fra Portugal i vest østover til Zagros- og Elburzfjellene i Iran.
