Abstract

Aethionema erzincanum sp. nova (Brassicaceae) is described from Erzincan Province in Turkey. It is morphologically close to A. speciosum, but its leaves are succulent, flowers white with a pink mid-vein, and pedicels are erect at fruiting stage. We provide information on the pollen and seed structure and habitat, and a species distribution map.
