Variability of some of the morphological characters of the bracts and the flowers (lower lips with tube) on the basis of 5150 specimens from genus Euphrasia, subsection Ciliatae is presented. These specimens were included in 23 taxonomical samples from herbarium of W. Szafer Institute of Botany, Polish Academy of Sciences in Kraków (KRAM) and in 179 populations samples from Poland. The similarites and differences between the arithmetic means of the samples been shown by the method Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Canonical Discriminant Analysis (CDA), Cluster Analysis (CA), graphical method of J. Jentys-Szaferowa, and others. Found that in Poland there are the following taxa: E. officinalis subsp. rostkoviana, E. pieta, E. exaristata, E. stricta, E. xvernalis, E. nemorosa (including E. coerulea) with subsp. nemorosa and subsp. curta, E. tatrae with subsp. tatrae and subsp. xglandulifera, E. minima and E. micrantha. The key to determine particular taxa is given.

New localities and current distribution maps of rare vascular plant species in the northern part of the Puszcza Niepoiomicka forest are published. For more frequent species new localities are also given. The floristic data were collected in 2012-2015, mainly in the Vistula and Drwinka River valleys. Ten plant species are given for the first time in the flora of the Puszcza Niepoiomicka forest: Cerastium glutinosum, Erechtites hieracifolia, Fragaria viridis, Potentilla neumanniana, Myosotis ramosissima, M. stricta, Valerianella locusta, Veronica triphyllos, Viola hirta and V. stagnina. Cerastium semidecandrum regarded as probably extinct in the Puszcza Niepoiomicka forest was noted again.

The list of anthropophytes noted in the Vistula River valley (between Raba and Wisłoka Rivers mouths) in the Kotlina Sandomierska basin is presented. Anthropophytes count 180 species (22.9% of all noted vascular plant species). They include: 91 archaeophytes (11.6% of all species), 66 kenophytes (8,4%; 29 epecophytes, 32 hemiagriophytes and 5 holoagriophytes) and 23 ergasiophygophytes. Most of them (67.8%) are very rare or rare species.

Gaudin's protologue (Gaudin 1828) is examined to elucidate the correct name of the marsh gladiolus. The correct name of Gladiolus palustris Gaudin is established. This specific name is in accordance with the rules of the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (Art. 11.1 and 11.4; McNeill et al. 2012) and such form should be used. G. paluster Gaudin is not a synonym of G. palustris Gaudin. The Latin adjective paluster classically had the -er ending for the masculine but botanical usage generally prefers the masculine -is ending.

Staphylea pinnata L. is a protected species in Poland. In Ciȩżkowice Foothills it is rare plant (Fig. 1). In May 2009, the new locality of this species have been found near Wola Lubecka (EF 7840 according to ATPOL square system) in the Polish Western Carpathians. © W.Szafer Institute of Botany, Polish Academy of Science 2011 All Right Reservd.
