Abstract:
A new species from Mt Etna (Sicily), Allium aetenense of A . sect. Codonoprasum , is described and illustrated. It is a diploid species (2 n = 16) that grows on basaltic rocks in the mountain belt and shows close relationships with A. tenuiflorum of the Italian peninsula. Its morphology, karyology, leaf anatomy, seed coat microsculpturing, ecology and taxonomic position are examined.
