The identity of Bupleurum citrinum Hochst. (Umbelliferae)

Michael G. Pimenov

Described from Erzurum Province in eastern Turkey, the annual plant Bupleurum citrinum has not been included in modern Turkish floras. Examination of a single type specimen of this species in the University of Tübingen Herbarium showed that B. citricum belongs to B. aleppicum, a species widely distributed in Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey.
