Abstract: In this study we describe a new nothospecies, Cirsium ×sudae Michálková et Bureš, a homoploid hybrid between two rare Alpine species, C. carniolicum and C. greimleri. Hybrid status was confirmed for four morphologically intermediate individuals, found in the Ennstal Alps, Austria (three of them were F1 hybrids and one a backcross with C. carniolicum). We used amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) to confirm affiliation to the parental species and exclude the potential contribution of other sympatric sp…
