Abstract

Bellevalia turcica was described as a new species in the Pozantı district, Adana province in the south of Turkey. The palynological, ecological, and phenological characteristics were determined. Bellevalia turcica is similar to Bellevalia fominii Woronow, but can easily be distinguished from the differences in the flower and leaf trait characteristics. Full description and detailed photographs of this new species were provided. The somatic chromosome number of B. turcica was determined to be 2n = 2x = 8. B. turcica was attributed into the “Vulnerable” category after assessment based on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Categories. The distribution patterns of B. turcica and other related Bellevalia species were also presented.
