- Tulipa luanica (Liliaceae) is illustrated and described as a new species. It was discovered on limestone substrate on Mt. Pashtriku (in the district of Prizren) in southern Kosovo near the border with Albania. It is compared with Tulipa australis, T. gesneriana, T. kosovarica, T. serbica (prevalent in Kosovo), and T. albanica (widespread in Albania). The chromosome formula is 2n = 2x = 24 (2 metacentric, 2 submetacentric and 8 subtelocentric).
