A new species is described from South Anatolia: Cephalaria ekimiana R. S. Gokturk & H. Sumbul (Dipsacaceae). The closest species to this one is Cephalaria lycica Matthews. The main features that differentiate Cephalaria ekimiana from C. lycica are that all bracts are dark brown margined, the involucral bracts are orbicular and the involucel has eight equal or subequal teeth (not 4 long and 4 short teeth) and the stem is much taller.
