This paper presents the chromosome numbers of nine species from the section Alchemilla, subsection Heliodrosium, series Vulgares. The studies were carried out on plants from the Northeast Anatolia (Turkey). The following chromosome numbers have been detected; A. valdehirsuta 2n= 96-106, A. inonticola 2n= 101-110, A. stevenii 2n= 98-106, A. crinita 2n= 102-108, A. conipactilis 2n= 98, A. heterophylla 2n= 100-105, A. minusculiflora 2n= 87-97, A. pseudocartalinica 2n= 98-108, A. straminca 2n= 80-91. The species of genus Alchemilla studied from Northeast Anatolia are proven to be polyploids like the majority of species from the section Alchemilla investigated from various geographic areas.
