Parolly, G., Eren, Ö. & Nordt, B.: Lomelosia solymica (Dipsacaceae), a new chasmophyte from the Western Taurus Mts, Turkey. — Willdenowia 35: 107–115. — ISSN 0511-9618; © 2005 BGBM Berlin-Dahlem. doi:10.3372/wi.35.35108 (available via http://dx.doi.org/)
Lomelosia solymica, a plant of montane, sea facing cliffs of the Tahtalı Dağı in the Western Taurus Mts south of Antalya is described as a species new to science and illustrated. Its isolated taxonomic position within the genus and its peculiarities, such as the awnless calyx, are discussed. We interpret the latter character within the chasmophytic syndrome and develop the hypothesis that it facilitates dispersal by ants into narrow rock fissures.
