Abstract

Astragalus croaticus Alegro, Bogdanović, Brullo & Giusso sp. nova (Fabaceae) is described and illustrated from Dalmatia (Croatia). It. grows on the carbonatic mountains of Biokovo and Mosor on rocky stands. Morphologically, it shows close similari ties with A. sirinicus and A. angustifolius, two thorny species belonging to the sect. Melanocercis. However, A. croaticus has several distinguishing features chiefly in the leaves, flowers and legumes.
