Genome size estimations are reported for nine Gagea species, belonging to two different sections. The lowest value was found in Gagea cf. peduncularis from Turkey (sect. Didymobulbos), 2C = 12.06 pg, likely diploid, the highest in a pentaploid G. pratensis from S France (sect. Gagea), 2C = 39.45 pg. Monoploid genome size or 1Cx values range from 5.81 pg in G. foliosa (sect. Didymobulbos) to 9.16 pg in G. sicula, from the same section.
