Abstract

Trigonella coerulescens (Bieb.) Hal. subsp. kemerensis R.S. Gokturk subsp. nova (Fabaceae) is described from SW Anatolia, Turkey and illustrated. It grows on sandy seashores in Olimpos-Cirali (Kemer) and Adrasan (Kumluca) beaches. It is closely related to subsp. coerulescens, an endemic taxon confined to Olimpos-Beydaglari National Park. Diagnostic morphological characters of subsp. kemerensis and subsp. coerulescens are discussed.
