Abstract: 
The genus Triticum L. contains about 20 species at world wide and about 11 in Iran. There is no general agreement on the number of wild Triticum species occur in Iran (T. boeoticum Boiss T. monococcum L. and T. urartu Tum. ex Gand.) Due to lack of a precise taxonomic treatment on the genus in Iran. This study concerns the morphological and taxonomic studies on three wild diploid species. at T. boeoticum (27 accessions). T. monococcum (10 accessions) and T. urartu (2 accessions). Using 7 quantitative and 8 qualitative characters. Based on the results of this study the quantitative and qualitative morphological characters showed significant intra and inter specific variation among the taxa studied. The spike's features such as: apex of glume. number of awn in lemma and length of awn are to be the best diagnostic characters in the taxa investigated.
