A study of Anthemis amblyolepis, following its rediscovery at Rosh Hanikra, demonstrated, on the basis of the examination of characteristics of the inflorescence and sections, that this plant deserves the status of an independent species. The question of its status as an independent species or a subspecies of the Palestine Chamomile (Anthemis palestina) has been debated in light of the history of the studies made on this species of Athemis, which presented differing opinions concerning its connection to the Palestine Chamomile. Since the plant is to be found in a single site in Israel, and is in danger of extinction, it deserves to be included in the list of the Israeli endangered species.

The finding of a stable population on the Galilean coast was a surprise, and is discussed in this article in light of the world distribution of the plant.
