Abstract
The specific parasite of Lactuca (Compositae) described in 2005 from the Iberian Peninsula as Phelipanche inexspectata (Orobanchaceae) and known so far in northeastern Spain and southern France, is shown to also occur in mountain areas of northern Africa, where it had been previously described under the neglected name Phelipanche cernua. Given the recent proposal to consider the aforementioned Lactuca parasite a mere variant of Phelipanche schultzii, we stress the neat differences between both species.
