status

comb. nov.

Poa attalica (H. Scholz) Soreng, Cabi & L.J. Gillespie  comb. nov.

Eremopoa attalica  H. Scholz, Willdenowia 10(1): 33, f. 1. 1980.

Type.

Turkey. Antalya, "nordwestl. Antalya bei Termessos, ausgetrockneter Gebirgsbach", 300 m, 23 Jul 1979, Kehl s.n. (holotype: B! [B-100272775])

Distribution.

Turkey (western Taurus Mts.).

Notes.

We provisionally retain this species in sect. Pseudopoa  , despite its divergent phylogenetic placement. The species is morphologically similar to other members of the section. As noted by Mill (1985), it is most like Poa nephelochloides  Roshev., but the anthers are smaller. Some populations of P. millii  approach P. attalica  and are problematical to separate (see under P. millii  ). Further molecular study is needed to determine if the three species are closely related and if a new section is warranted.
