Abstract

Amygdalus ghahremanii Maroofi, Attar & Vafadar, a new shrubby species of the genus Amygdalus L. (Rosaceae) from Iran, is described and illustrated. This new species was collected from Kurdistan Province in western Iran. The closest relative to A. ghahremanii is A. korshinskyi (Hand.-Mazz.) Bornm., which also occurs as a more or less widespread species in western and northwestern Iran and is a sympatric relative. Morphological differences between A. ghahremanii and A. korshinskyi are found in the indumentum of young branches and petioles, length of pedicels, length of hypanthia, sepals and styles, as well as in the internal indumentum of the basal portion of the hypanthium and in the shape of drupes and stones.
