A taxonomic revision of Helichrysum sect. Stoechadina, a section with a Mediterranean distribution, is presented. Taxonomic, nomenclatural, morphological, chromosomal, geographical, and ecological data are provided for each taxon. Eleven taxa are recognized, two lectotypifications are proposed, and a taxonomic key and a sectional description are included. The following new combinations are proposed: Helichrysum italicum subsp. siculum (Jord. & Fourr.) Galbany, L. Sáez & Benedí comb. nov. and Helichrysum italicum subsp. picardii (Boiss. & Reut.)
