Nepeta viscida, N. nuda subsp. nuda, and their putative hybrid N. × tmolea were evaluated for their essential oils with chemotaxonomical aspect. Hybrid of N. x tmolea individuals were observed in the regions where the distribution of N. viscida and N. nuda subsp. nuda taxa were present, namely Dursunbey (Balıkesir) and Ödemiş (İzmir) natural habitats, respectively. The aerial parts of the taxa were hydrodistilled for 4 h using a Clevenger-type apparatus. The essential oils were analyzed both by
