The subtribe Centaureinae is known for its remarkable aneuploidy, from n = 16 to n = 8. A new, even lower basic number is added to the series, n = 7 for Centaurea patula (sect. Ammocyanus). Correlations between the aneuploid series and morphology, biogeography and DNA-based phylogeny of the subtribe are suggested.
