Fritsch R. M. & Maroofi H. 2010. New species and new records of Allium L. (Alliaceae) from Iran. – Phyton (Horn, Austria) 50 (1): 1–26, with 15 figures.
Allium turcomanicum Regel, A. egorovae M. V. Agababian & Oganesian, and A. shatakiense Rech. f. known from adjacent countries were newly recorded for the Iranian territory, and actual data for A. szovitsii Regel were presented. These records were based on herbarium specimens housed in Vienna (W) and Tehran (TARI). Other Allium plants rather recently collected in Iran turned out to belong to hitherto not recognized taxa and were described as new species. A. najafdaricum R. M. Fritsch, A. jaegeri R. M. Fritsch, and A. chlorotepalum R. M. Fritsch & M. Jaeger were studied as living plants under cultivation, and A. mozaffarianii Maroofi & R. M. Fritsch from wild growing plants and herbarium specimens. These species were completely described, their taxonomic relations were discussed, and their distribution in Iran shown on maps.
