Abstract

Additions to the species list for the flora of Ohio are presented, based upon reports vouchered by herbarium specimens. Included are seven new genera and 49 new species and subspecies, representing 10 families. Of these, the following genera are first reports for the state: Calibrachoa, Callicarpa, Cyclospermum, Dittrichia, Hippophae, Photinia, and Sideritis. None of the discoveries included in this work represents a new family for Ohio. Also included are noteworthy finds and discussions of taxa deleted from the flora and from county records, along with our rationale for each change.
