Tragopogon dshimilensis K. Koch is endemic to Turkey. This neglected species had been known from the original collection and was not included in the Flora of Turkey. Recently it was recollected from its type locality (A8 Rize: Cimil) and several adjacent localities. Based on two authentic specimens deposited at P and B, as well as new collections from Eastern Anatolia, an emended description and typification of T. dshimilensis are presented here, and its conservation status is also indicated.
