In this paper, a new species, Muscari tauricum sp. nov. is described and illustrated from Southern Turkey. It has similar morphological characters to M. aucheri and M. bourgaei except for its broad and several leaves, pyramidal raceme, patent and longer pedicels, small fertile flowers, and early flowering time that distinguish the new species from other Muscari species. A complete morphological description and illustration are given, including comments on karyotypes. The morphological differences among the new species and related species are also discussed.
