Abstract

A new subspecies of Centaurea yaltirikii N. Aksoy, H. Duman and A. Efe subsp. dumanii N. Aksoy and A. Efe (C. sect.

The characteristics of the new subspecies are compared with those of the type subspecies from which it differs mainly in the hair of the leaves, stomata types, length and width of the pappus and surface of achene. In addition, the geographic distribution of the new subspecies is mapped.
