Integrative taxonomy, based on the combination of multiple lines of evidence, provides the foundations for a robust species delimitation. Here we provide a taxonomic synopsis of the Iberian clade of Linaria subsect. Versicolores based on recently published morphometric and phylogenomic data. This clade radiated in the Iberian Peninsula (western Mediterranean) during the Quaternary and is being intensively studied from phylogenetic, evolutionary, biogeographic, ecological and developmental standpoints. Eight morphologically and genetically distinct species are recognised in the clade: L. algarviana, L. becerrae, L. clementei, L. incarnata, L. onubensis, L. salzmannii, L. spartea and L. viscosa. For each accepted species, the type material and notes on diagnostic characters, distribution, habitat and intraspecific variability are provided. Five names are typified (four neotypes and one lectotype are designated), and references to previous typifications are also presented. A distribution map and an identification key are presented. This synopsis will provide the basis for future research on speciation and evolution of the clade.
