In the study, Puschkinia scilloides Adams, P. bilgineri Yıldırım, and P. peshmenii Rix et B. Mathew were
compared anatomically. Although the stem vascular bundles were arranged in two rows in P. peshmenii, they
can observed in three rows in P. scilloides and P. bilgineri. In addition, some differences were found, such as the
metaxylem number in the root, number of vascular bundles in the scape, presence of raphide crystals, and number
of protruding epidermis cells at the tip of the leaf. These differences have been found to be taxonomically
useful for distinguishing these species. Moreover, similarities and differences between Puschkinia Adams and the
taxonomically closely related Scilla L. section Chionodoxa Boiss. and Scilla bifolia L. taxa were also discussed.
