Cynara tournefortii, an endemic of Spain and Portugal that had been excluded from Cynara in a recent revision of that genus, is placed in the newly described, unispecific genus Arcyna. A full description, with illustrations, and a distribution map are presented. Within the subtribe Carduinae, the closest relatives of Arcyna appear to be Silybum and Cynara.
