Silene (sect. Saxifragoides) notarisii, usually wrongly synonymised with S. saxifraga or S. multicaulis, is shown to be a species allied to but separate from S. saxifraga and endemic to the Central Apennines, Italy. The name S. notarisii is lectotypified and reliable morphological differences to S. multicaulis, S. parnassica and S. saxifraga are pointed out.
