This study describes the karyotypes of 10 Turkish species of Trigonella L belonging to section Cylindricae Boiss (Leguminosae) Excluding the karyotypes of T velutina Boiss and of T sibthorpii Boiss which were previously studied, all of the other 8 species were studied here for the first time The species of the section were gathered from different localities in Turkey and it was determined that the somatic chromosome numbers for all species were the same (2n = 16) Also satellite metaphase chromosomes were determined in T velutina and T strangulata
