Kandemir, A. & Hedge, I. C. 2007: An anomalous new Ferulago (Apiaceae) from eastern Turkey.
Willdenowia 37: 273-276. 

A distinctive new species, Ferulago glareosa, is described as a species new to science and illustrated from a localised area of Erzincan province. It differs from all other species in the genus on account of its scree-like habit, scarcely developed fibrous collar, slender stems, loose inflorescence, few-rayed umbels and the scarcely winged lateral ridges on the mericarps. Despite its anomalous facies in the genus, molecular evidence indicates affinities with Ferulago and there are no apparent reasons for not including it in this genus.

Key words
Umbelliferae, taxonomy, Ferulago glareosa, Erzincan.
