A widespread and polymorphic species which according to Vestergren (Stroh in Arkiv. Bot. 29A(8): 1-39.1938) comprises several subspecies throughout its geographical range. Vestergren (in nota, l.c. 6) was of the view that the plants from the Himalayas were fairly distinct and represented a separate race, “Myosotis himalaica. ined.” More material of Myosotis sylvatica from the Himalayas is required for further studies, involving pollen morphology to verify this. Our plants come closest to subsp. rivularis Vestergren (found N. & NW. Iran) and are tentatively treated under this subhead. According to M. Popov (l.c. 373) typical Myosotis sylvatica is a forest plant with broader leaves and thin ± creeping rhizome.
