The article examines the study of the Scutellaria L. sect. Lupulinaria A. Hamilton (Lamiaceae) in Karabakh and adjacent regions. The herbarium specimens of BAK as well as various virtual herbaria samples collected in 1900-2020 have been analyzed to understand the status of research related to the genus Scutellaria. In addition, the species of the genus Scutellaria occurring in Azerbaijan and neighboring countries have also been compared by using a systematic review of relevant literature. According to the floristic study of the Scutellaria L. sect. Lupulinaria A. Hamilton in Karabakh, it is concluded that they have been poorly investigated since the second half of the twentieth century. The species have not been studied recently, last 30-40 years, so their systematics is required to be investigated comprehensively. At the same time, opinions and comments are given on the study of Scutellaria species of the region soon after the liberation of those areas from Armenian military occupation.
