The recent taxonomical studies based on morphological data as well as ITS based
molecular data suggested that the genus Gundelia L. (Asteraceae) should be divided into two
subgenera; Gundelia L. subg. Gundelia (Type species: G. tournefortii) and Gundelia L. subg.
Anatolia Fırat subg. nov. (Type species: G. anatolica). Additionally, morphological data
suggest that there should be two sections within the subgenus Gundelia; Gundelia L.
subg. Gundelia sect. Gundelia (Type species: G. tournefortii) and Gundelia L. subg. Gundelia
sect. Komagenenses Fırat sect. nov. (Type species: G. komagenensis). All taxonomic and
nomenclatural contributions provided in the current study and as well as the morphological
affinities of the all established taxon.
