Description & Remarks

Named after Adana in SE Turkey, where the first specimen of this species was discovered. Collected first in Israel September 23rd, 2007 in crevices of a sidewalk at the meeting area of Jerusalem and Bet Tzafafa. One specimen was observed. However, due to the increasing information on its distribution in Turkey, as more collections are made, it was included in the list of plants of Israel as well. Its finding was reported first in Willdenowia 37: p. 436.A visit in the middle of January revealed that a new sidewalk was constructed in the site where B. adanensis grew and disappeared. Did anybody find it elsewhere?
An additional specimen was found, 9.6.2011 in Ora, near Jerusalem, at the margin of a garden near the main street of Ora. This specimen seems better developed than the previous one. Another one was discovered on 1-6-2013 below a tree at the side of Rehov Herzl X Rehov HaMeyasdim in Jerusalem
