Abstract

12 species, Arthropteris orientalis, Chamaecrista pumila, Cordia crenata, Cosentinia vellea, Dryopteris schimperiana, Eragrostis tenuifolia, Galinsoga parviflora, Lagenantha cf. cycloptera, Olea capensis, Polystichum fuscopaleaceum, Rhus natalensis and R. cf. tenui-nervis, are reported as new for the island. Five of these also represent new generic records, i.e. Arthropteris, Cosentinia, Dryopteris, Olea and Polystichum. Volutaria socotrensis is described, by G. Wagenitz, as a species and Euphorbia socotrana subsp. purpurea as a subspecies new to science and illustrated. Recent records from the island of 13 species hitherto only known from late 19th century records and significant new locality records of 32 rare or undercollected taxa are provided.
