In this study, a total of 35 samples belonging to 9 species of the genus Allium sect. Acanthoprason were evaluated. The samples were analyzed using 6 SRAP primer combinations that showed 78 bands. The obtained data were then analyzed using NTSYS-pc software, Jaccard, Dice coefficients, and Neighbor Joining clustering method. The results showed that all samples of each species were mainly grouped, which supports the taxonomic classification based on morphology. Regarding the high genetic similarities, geographic distribution and previous studies, A. derderianum and A. alamutense can be considered as close related species. Also the results showed a close relationship between A. hamedanense and A. materculae. Based on the results of this study, the taxonomic status of the section in Iran needs to be revised. Indeed, SRAP can be useful in distinguishing the species in the closely related species. As the species of Acanthoprason are endemic to Iran and it is critical to have programs for protection of the species.
