In this investigation, some morphological and anatomical characteristics of Crocus leichtlinii (D.Delwar) Bowles, an endemic species which has flowering time in early spring, were observed. The specimen was collected from Sanliurfa, South East Anatolia, within C7 of the grid system; its habitat and population status was also determined. Morphological features of species such as leaf, bracteol, flower, and fruit have been described in detail. The determination of the anatomical characteristics present the first data available in the literature. In anatomical studies, transverse sections of leaf and root have been examined and supported by illustration. Anatomical characters of species were observed to have been similar to usual features of Iridaceae anatomy.
