Abstract: Hedwigia ciliata (Hedw.) Ehrh. ex P.Beauv. var. leucophaea Bruch & Schimp. is recorded as a new taxon for the bryophyte flora of Turkey. It belongs to the H. ciliata complex sensu lata that consists of three different taxa: H. stellata, H. ciliata var. ciliata, and H. ciliata var. leucophaea. As all three taxa occur in Turkey, a key to the species, descriptions, illustrations of the diagnostic characters, as well as their distribution in Turkey are presented.
