Abstract

Mainly based on recent field work, notes on 32 taxa of flowering plants of the Cape Verde Islands are provided. Apart from taxonomical remarks, ecological data and several interesting floristic findings - including the rediscovery of Conyza schlechtendalii and Sporobolus confertus, both hitherto only known from their type collection made in the 19th century - several new and confirming records for single islands are presented. Five turned out to be new for the archipelago, i.e. Ammania senegalensis, Eleocharis geniculata, Fimbristylus thonningiana, Plantago lanceolata and Pluchea lanceolata. The name Sporobolus minutus subsp. confertus is formed as a combination new to science. In addition, chromosome counts for six taxa are given, of five the numbers were unknown.
