Inflorescence elongate, branched, with spreading branches. Perianth 1-2.5 mm long, free to below the middle. Fruit rounded, flattened, 2-4 mm in diam. with a broad and somewhat undulate wing, with or without a distinct apical notch, with or without a tubercle-shaped remnant of style.

Iljin (in Kom., l.c.) distinguished A. turcomanica Iljin by the absence of style tubercle and bracts oval. These characters hardly merit formal recognition. More material is needed.
