The Genus Moenchia (Caryophyllaceae) in Turkey

Mustafa KESKİN [1]


A new identification key, full descriptions, and distribution records based on various herbaria of Turkish Moenchia are given in this study. Detailed and comparative descriptions of the studied species have been prepared. Also, a new species, Moenchia akmanii M.Keskin sp. nov., is described as for science. The new species is morphologically similar to M. graeca that is but differs by long stems, different leaves, non-flowering shoots, 3-nerved sepals, mauve anthers, etc. The new identification key has been created to distinguish taxa distributed in Turkey.
