Abstract

Ebenus zekiyeae Aytac & Yildirim sp. nova (Fabaceae) is described and illustrated from Erzurum, eastern Anatolia, Turkey. It grows on dry, stony slopes and morphologically resembles E. reesei. Its diagnostic characters are discussed. The leaflet and pollen surface of E. zekiyeae were examined using scanning electron microscopy. Distributions of E. zekiyeae and E. reesei and an identification key to Turkish taxa of Ebenus are provided.
