Abstract

A critical species of the European flora,Allium fuscum Waldst. & Kit., belonging toA. sect.Codonoprasum Rchb., is investigated. The species was previously confused with other taxa of theA. paniculatum group, but on the basis of herbarium and field investigationsA. fuscum is a rare chasmophyte, distributed in Romania and Bulgaria. The description, chromosome number (2n=16), taxonomy, chorology and ecology are provided. The relationships of this species with some related taxa of theA. paniculatum group are also examined.
