The morphology, distribution, and ecology of Allium affine Ledeb. are dealt with. A subdivision on the basis of leaf structure and spathe morphology of the species belonging to section Allium is proposed. The position of A. affine within the group of Allium species with cylindrical leaves and caducous spathe is discussed. The chromosome morphology of this species is presented and compared with that of other species of the group, especially with regard to marker chromosomes.
