Abstract

In this short communication we report a new fern for Montenegro - Botrychium matricariifolium (Doll) A. Braun ex W.D.J. Koch, known as the chamomile grapefern. Up to now, the only Botrychium species in the flora of Montenegro was B. lunaria (L.) Sw., a typical species for montane to alpine grasslands and meadows. One individual of B. matricariifolium was found in a forest opening on the mountain Babji zub. B. matricariifolium was accompanied by numerous individuals of B. lunaria. These species are clearly distinguished by the lamina, which is in B. matricariifolium 2-pinnatifid, while in B. lunaria it is 1-pinnate with trapezoid to flabellate pinnae. Although chamonile grapefern has a large range of distribution, it is everywhere a rare species that has some kind of protection status in the most European countries. In order to define the protection status of the species in Montenegro, further investigation is needed.

Abstract

During floristic research of acidic bogs, calcareous fens and seasonally flooded (periodically inundated) grassy places in beech forests in Semolj region, Eleocharis carniolica W. D. J. Koch was found, which was the first record of that species in vascular plant flora of Montenegro. In surrounding countries, this species was recorded in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia and Albania. This paper provides description of sites, habitat and ecology of Eleocharis carniolica W.
