Abstract


This present paper deals with six species of flowering plants as an addition to the flora of Yemen reported from field tripsundertaken during 2008 to 2012. For instance Dipcadi serotinum, Hibiscus aristaevalvis, Pluchea ovalis and Viscum cruciatum have been reported as new record for Yemen, and Helianthemum stipulatum and Striga angustifolia are
recorded as new for the southwestern part of Yemen or larger parts of it. A brief morphological description, occurrence, habitat, life form, phytogeographical affinities, global distribution and photographs of each species are given for easy identification.
