This annual plant with a broadly Mediterranean distribution is present in all regions of Italy, with the exception of Trentino Alto Adige and Molise (reported as a weed also from Friuli Venezia Giulia, and since a long time no longer observed in Valle d'Aosta). It grows in dry pastures and in crops at rest, usually on siliceous substrates, below the montane belt. The species is sporadic in the outer belt of the Sardinian temporary ponds, in contact with the Mediterranean maquis, grasslands and garrigue vegetation. The genus name derives from the Greek 'hypo' (below) and 'choeros' (pig) with the meaning of 'food for pigs'; the species name refers to the fact that the plant is usually hairless. Flowering period: April to May.



Italian name(s): Cicoria salvadega (Lombardia, Como), Costolina liscia (Italia), Erba porcellina (Toscana, Val di Chiana), Garouna (Liguria, Nizza), Ipocheride glabra (Italia), Petascioe (Lombardia, Cant. Ticino)
