Abstract: Massive imaging of herbarium collections is performed only in a few countries, leading to disproportions in geographical coverage of the world's flora across virtual herbaria. The Moscow University Herbarium (MW) digitised all Asian collections in 2016-2017 and published them online at https://plant.depo.msu.ru/, including 3283 specimens from Turkey. These collections include important historical gatherings by P.E. Boissier, C. Haussknecht, and T. Kotschy and recent collections by the Moscow University staff members. Currently, MW holds 331 type specimens of 285 taxa described from Anatolia-19 holotypes, 47 isotypes, 48 isolectotypes, and 203 syntypes.
