Thurya is a monotypic genus of flowering plant belonging to the family Caryophyllaceae.[1] It only contains one known species, Thurya capitata Boiss. & Balansa[1]

It is native to Turkey.[1]

The genus name of Thurya is in honour of Jean Marc Antoine Thury (1822–1905), a Swiss naturalist and professor of botany at the University of Geneva.[2] The Latin specific epithet of capitata means having dense-headed growth and is derived from capitatus.[3] Both the genus and the species were first described and published in P.E.Boissier, Diagn. Pl. Orient., series.2, Vol.5 on pages 63-64 in 1856.[1]
