Comment: the argument has been made that the designation "Lamium galeobdolon" L. (1759) was the result of a typographical error, as explained by Stearn (in Geck & Pressler, Festschr. Claus Nissen: 631. 1974), for what was apparently intended as Galeopsis galeobdolon L.; while this may be so we cannot know this for certain, and accept what was actually printed as what was intended (fide K. Gandhi & W. Greuter, pers. comm. via e-mails on 15-16 Jul 2014)
