Whilst it may be so that these biochemical differences exist (and even could turn out to be consistent with wider sampling), it remains to be demonstrated that it is taxonomically informative to base species concepts on such data, creating "cryptic species". The same arguments apply to Juniperus zanonii.
A further species Juniperus macrocarpa, confined to Mediterranean coastal sands, is more distinct but has also often been treated as a subspecies of Prickly Juniper, as J. oxycedrus subsp. macrocarpa; it differs in the broader leaves 2–3 mm wide, and larger cones 12–18 mm diameter.
