Eleven rust species, one of which was identified only to sp., are reported from Anatolia in Asia Minor, Turkey. Four species are described as new, viz., Puccinia malatyensis on Johrenia berytea, P. onosmatis on Onosma sericea, P. umbilicicola on Umbilicus erectus and P. yildizii on Echinophora tenuifolia. P. lactucarum on Scariola viminea and Uromyces eurotiae on Krascheninnikovia ceratoides are reported as new members of the Turkish rust flora. Petrorhagia alpina represents a new host genus for Uromyces dianthi while Clinopodium vulgare ssp. arundanum does so for Puccinia menthae in Turkey.
