Abstract
Crocus chrysanthus subsp. sipyleus Candan & Özhatay is an endemic taxon distrubutes only on Spil Mountain in Manisa city of Turkey in the world. Its significant morphological differences made it as a new taxon. However, this taxon can be distinguished with its colorful flowers with purple or brown lines on tepals and the anthers with black or lines. In this study, it is aimed to compare morphology of the new taxon Crocus chrysanthus subsp. sipyleus Candan & Özhatay as regards mature plants with its colorful photographs in a detailed way.
