New for the N Aegean area (NAe), confirming a
previous report by Panitsa & al. (2003) for the island of
Limnos. However, their specimen from Agios Sózon is
identified as G. collinum (Griseb.) Boiss. and G. sartorii
was separately reported by them from another locality
on Limnos (from Evraeokastro). It is thus possible that
both taxa occur in the same locality.
Goniolimon sartorii, previously known only from
Attikis, Evvia and the Kiklades, closely resembles G.
collinum, differing most obviously in the shape of the
basal rosette leaves which are abruptly contracted
into the petiole in G. sartorii and gradually narrowed
into the petiole in G. collinum.

Cupressaceae
105. Juniperus sabina L. (Fig. 7)
Bu Rhodopi Mts (Eastern): Gyumyurdzhinski
Snezhnik ridge, in the area of Gorno Kapinovo
village, Dyuza locality, near peak Veykata, just
below the roof on a northern slope above the
alpine timberline, in rocky places, 1215 m,
41°14'47.1" N, 25°15'06.6" E, LF-56, 13.06.2001,
coll. A. Tashev (SOM 164048, 164049; SO 104854).
Two compact spots of Juniperus sabina L. were
found, situated in an area of 150–250 m2 and several
hundred meters apart from each other. Single
individuals of Juniperus communis occur within the
communities. The two spots are situated above the
timberline, which is close to the locality and the
roof, and is formed by a community dominated by
Fagus orientalis, with substantial presence of Acer
heldreichii, occurring in small to large groups. The
terrain is highly eroded due to regular overgrazing by
goats penetrating from Greece.
This rare and protected in Bulgaria species has
been known so far from the following three floristic
regions: the Forebalkan (Western), Balkan Range
(Central) and Rila Mts (Assyov & Petrova 2006: 224).
Asclepiadaceae
106. Cionura erecta (L.) Griseb.
Bu Thracian Lowland: in the vicinities of Harmanli
town, in Prikazkite locality, on a rocky southern
slope of 20°, 95 m, 41°55'01.0" N, 25°53'09.1" E,
MG-04, 04.08.2007, coll. A. Tashev (SOM 164046,
164047; SO 104851, 104852).
The individuals occur within sparse bush communities
consisting of Syringa vulgaris, Paliurus spina-christi,
Pistacia terebinthus, Clematis vitalba, Vitis sylvestris,
Carpinus orientalis, Fraxinus ornus, Prunus spinosa,

Quercus pubescens, Rubus sanguineus, Rosa canina,
Juniperus oxycedrus and some others. The herbaceous
layer is dominated by cereals, and the species with
highest coverage include Chrysopogon gryllus,
Dichanthium ischaemum, Poa bulbosa, Brachypodium
pinnatum, etc. Also, many ruderal and weed plants
occur in the communities, the therophytes being
predominant: Alyssum alyssoides, Arabidopsis
thaliana, Calepina irregularis, Capsella bursa-pastoris,
Chondrilla juncea, Erodium cicutarium, Fumaria
officinalis, Senecio vulgaris, Trifolium arvense, etc. Also,
some species of conservation value were found in the
locality, such as Alkanna primuliflora, Crepis stojanovii,
Erodium hoefftianum, Scandix australis, Achillea
depressa, Muscari vandasii, Myosotis macedonica and
Hypericum thasium.
This species has been known so far from the
Black Sea Coast, Valley of Strouma River, the
Rhodopi Mts (Eastern), and the Tundzha Hilly
Country (Assyov & Petrova 2006: 126).

Two species of Fimbristylis were independently collected during investigations on the flora of Samothraki in 1998 and 2006. Both taxa, originating from tropical and warm temperate regions, have now spread to S Europe. F. bisumbellata is a new record for the island of Samothraki and F. squarrosa was found to be new for the flora of Greece. The occurrence in Greece is also the first documented record of the plant's existence in the Balkan Peninsula and SE Europe. In Europe, it was previously known only from NW and WC Italy.
