The North American Cyperus erythrorhizos is reported for the first time from Europe. It is found as an environmental weed in some wetlands near Ravenna in Italy. Distinguishing features for this species and some notes on its residence status, ecology and habitat in Italy are provided. © 2015 © 2015 Dipartimento di Biologia, Università di Firenze.

Argemone × hybrida is described as a natural hybrid of A. mexicana and A. ochroleuca, based on a collection from La Palma (Canary Islands, Spain), where both parents are found growing in close proximity. This hybrid may be more widespread but overlooked. Distinguishing features of all three taxa are thoroughly discussed and illustrated. © 2016 Magnolia Press.

The new combination, Cenchrus divisus (J.F. Gmelin) Verloove, Govaerts & Buttler, is proposed for the species widely known as Pennisetum divisum (J.F. Gmelin) Henrard, and a lectotype for Panicum divisum J.F. Gmelin is designated. © 2014 Magnolia Press.

Six subtropical weeds of the Cyperaceae family (Bulbostylis thouarsii, Cyperus compressus, C. distans, C. iria, C. pumilus and Fimbristylis dichotoma) are reliably reported for the first time from Spain (and probably from Europe as well). All were found in a municipal nursery near Valencia, destined for the restoration of natural habitats, and have probably been introduced, inadvertently, with coconut fiber from tropical Asia (possibly Sri Lanka). These species are briefly characterized and their weed status in the world is assessed. To prevent a future naturalization eradication of these weeds is recommended.

As a continuation of previous research on the naturalization of non-native vascular plants in the Iberian Peninsula new chorological data are presented for 16 xenophytes recorded between 2010 and 2014, mostly in the provinces of Huelva and Barcelona (Spain) and in the Algarve and Estremadura (Portugal). For each taxon details about distribution, habitats occupied, previous records, degree of naturalization, etc. are provided. Lachenalia bulbifera and Cyperus albostriatus are probably reported for the first time in the wild in Europe, as are Gamochaeta filaginea, and Dysphania anthelmintica and Oenothera lindheimeri for Portugal and Spain respectively. Cosmos bipinnatus is cited as a novelty for the Algarve (Portugal). Newly reported or confirmed for the province of Huelva are: Amaranthus hypochondriacus, Epilobium brachycarpum, Nephrolepis cordifolia, Ficus microcarpa, Tamarix parviflora and Tamarix ramosissima, while Atriplex semibaccata, Chloris truncata, and Elymus elongatus subsp. ponticus are new for Barcelona. Finally, Passiflora caerulea is a novelty for both Barcelona and Huelva provinces.
