Foetidus). S. Pillans near Bedford in July 1903. In var. foetidus the stems are usually short and stout and are clearly 4-angled, bearing obvious tubercles so that they are consequently not at all rounded. The flowers are 18-30 mm in diameter, with relatively broad lobes 5-7 mm across which are broader relative to their diameter than is the case for var. geminatus. The corolla is sometimes boldly transversely striped with brown (more rarely with red) on white to dark yellow and the dark colour often coalesces into an apical brown (or red) patch on each lobe.
