Some Dianthus specimens collected from Sakarya and Bolu Provinces (Turkey) are proposed as a new species. Dianthus nezahatiae Hamzaoğlu (Caryophyllaceae) is naturally distributed in subalpine meadow habitats in the altitude range of 1450 and 1620 m a.s.l. Dianthus nezahatiae differs from D. akdaghensis Gemici et Leblebici because its inner bracts are 1.7−2.1 mm wide, the apex of the epicalyx scales is attenuate–rounded, the petal collar is almost half of the claw width, and the capsule is longer than calyx. This paper gives a description of the species, a comparison with a close taxon, photographs, the distribution map, and its habitat preference.
