"Galatia: between the village of Seraikey and the little town of Arab, in the Eldiven-Gagh mountains, in marshes near springs, 1300 m colonial. 16 July, No. 282." Iris longipedicellata Czeczott in Acta Societatis Botanicorum Poloniae (Warsaw) 9:44, 1932. Mathew suggests this may be a synonym for Iris orientalis, but Marion Bowley believes the original description would suggest that it is distinct and suggests there may be other spuria species yet unknown in Turkey.
