Abstract: Two taxa, R. raphanistrum L. subsp. rostratus (DC.) Thell. and Campanula hierosolymitana Boiss., collected from southern Anatolia are described as a second records for the Flora of Turkey. Different taxonomists had collected these taxa from Turkey, but these collected samples were not identified correctly. These samples were not recorded in the first or sixth volume or the other 2 supplements of the Flora of Turkey in spite of these misidentifications having been published in different papers. In this paper, these taxa that are added to the Flora of Turkey are presented for the interest of Turkish taxonomists. The descriptions and photograph of the fruit shape of the taxa are given and an identification key for their closely related taxa is supplied.
