Abstract

The present list of phytogeographically noteworthy plants recorded between 2008 and 2010 in Crete (Kriti, Greece) includes herbarium specimen data with taxonomic, ecological and distributional annotations of 53 vascular plants and one bryophyte species. Twelve native taxa are new for Crete: Althenia orientalis, Anthyllis vulneraria subsp. pindicola, Carex riparia, Cerastium pumilum s.l., Drepanocladus aduncus, Elytrigia atherica, Erodium chium, Galium parisiense, Plantago coronopus s.str., P. crassifolia, P. crypsoides and P. phaeostoma. The latter two are new to the Greek territory and P. phaeostoma to Europe, too. The occurrence of the following species in Crete could be confirmed after many decades, for some after more than a century: Crypsis aculeata, Parapholis filiformis, Polycarpon alsinifolium and Turgenia latifolia. Two new combinations are introduced: Lomelosia sphaciotica subsp. decalvans and Schedonorus pluriflorus.
