Among the suffruticose cabbages of Brassica sect. Brassica, a new species from Sicily, named B. raimondoi, is described andillustrated. It is a chasmophyte restricted to some steep limestone cliffs near Taormina (NE Sicily) and is morphologicallyrelated to B. incana, with which it shares densely hairy, broad, amplexicaul leaves and winged petioles, but differs principallyin its white corolla, larger floral pieces, more developed stigmatic papillae, shorter siliquae with keeled valves and a smaller,seedless beak, smaller seeds differing in testa microsculpture. A key for the identification of the currently known Sicilian taxa of the section is provided.
