In 1926 Galeopsis pubescens was found in the Molenbosch at Oldeberkoop in the south-east of the province of Friesland. In the next year it was not found again and therefore considered a casual. However, it appeared that the species had been collected in the same village as early as about 1860/70. Quite recently it proved to be still present at the same locality in many richly flowering specimens, at least in favourable years. Therefore G. pubescens has to be considered indigenous or at least completely naturalized.
