Mt Saitas flora
Mt Saitas(1812m) is situated south of the Feneos basin and is adjacent to the mountains Chelmos, Kyllini and Oligirtos. Mt Saitas is well known as the site where Biebersteinia orphanidis was rediscovered in 1994 after being considered extinct since its first discovery in 1851.
The northern slopes of the mountain also host the largest populations of another rare and interesting plant, Adonis cyllenea. Also an Iris species which first was described as Iris germanica, is now considered as being a new species named Iris hellenica.
