A. acerosum (Willd.) Boiss., Diagn. ser. l(7):80(1846). Syn: Statice acerosa Willd. in Ges. Naturf. Neue Schr. 3:420 (1801). Figures 15 & 16.
Rather densely pulvinate, glaucous to glaucous-green shrublet. Leaves linear or piano-triquetrous, 15-60 x 0.8-2.2 mm, margins scabrid. Scapes simple, equal to or 2-2.5 mm x leaves. Spikes usually laxly distichous, rarely compact. Spikelets 5-15. Bracts glabrous, subequal or outer bract shorter than inner bracts; outer bract triangular-lanceolate, 5-10 mm, with narrow hyaline margin; inner bracts oblong-lanceolate, to narrowly lanceolate, obtuse to acute, cuspidate, hyaline except for vein or with broad hyaline margins. Calyx tube pilose on veins; limb white or pale flesh-coloured, usually 5-lobed. Petals pink. Fl. 6-8. Rocky igneous slopes, calcareous and sandy soils, steppe, (20-)800-2000 m.

Endemic. Ir.-Tur. element. A. acerosum s.l. is highly polymorphic and the most widely distributed species in Turkey. Together with A. caryophyllaceum, A. armenum and A. kotschyi it forms a species complex which presents considerable difficulties in separating the different species, but the relative length of the leaves, bracts and spikes, and the bract indumentum can still be usefully employed to delimit them.
