Abstract

Asperula pseudochlorantha Ehrend, and Asperula antalyensis Ehrend, from Turkey were described in 1958. General characteristics, seed structure and micromorphology, pollen measurements and other pollen characteristics were examined to determine the taxonomic status of these taxa. Morphologically, the two taxa cannot be easily distinguished, and the seeds and pollen grains are similar. The chromosome number is 2n = 22 for both taxa. Based on morphological, palynological and cytological similarities, and the fact that both taxa are found in the same habitats, we propose that A. antalyensis should be recognized as A. pseudochlorantha Ehrend, var. antalyensis (Ehrend.)
