The Iberian species of Calamintha Mill, are studied taxonomically, including chemical, palynological and karyological data. Two species inhabit the geographic área considered: C. nepeta, with two subspecies and C. grandiflora. Each species is accompanied by a distribution map (UTM projection) with points equivalent to 10 x 10 km quadrats. The new combinations Calamintha sect. Macromelissa (Benth.) R. Morales and C. nepeta subsp. sylvatica (Bromf.) R. Morales are proposed.
