Abstract

Crocus laevigatus, C. tournefortei and C. boryi constitute a small group of allied species inhabiting southern Greece, Crete and the islands of the Aegean. The relationship between the species and their position within the genus are discussed. The chromosome numbers of a wide range of wild material are published and the nature of the karyotype of each species is described, demonstrating that the species are distinct and stable in spite of being morphologically very similar and having overlapping distributions. A map showing the known distribution of each species and the localities of those specimens studied cytologically is published.
