Within Sedum tenuifolium (Sibth. & Sm.) Strobl two morphologically distinct forms can be recognised. These forms, characterised by the presence of long-stalked and short-stalked propagules, respectively, have different areas. The diploid of S. tenuifolium belongs to the shortstalked form, the hexaploid to the long-stalked form. The short-stalked form is newly described as ssp. ibericum, the name referring to its main area.
