New noteworthy records of flowering plants in Cyprus (2019–2021) and some status clarifications

  • This paper deals with specimen-based records of 20 taxa, the majority of which are alien species in Cyprus. The following taxa are new to Cyprus or have been documented by specimens for the first time: Allium tuberosum, Amaranthus emarginatus subsp. pseudogracilis, A. powellii, Commelina communis, Cyperus alternifolius subsp. flabelliformis, Helianthus annuus, Lantana camara, Leucaena leucocephala subsp. leucocephala, Phoenix dactylifera, Urochloa ramosa, Washingtonia filifera and Zea mays. Namely Leucaena leucocephala should be given particular consideration because it may soon become a problematic invasive.
