Abstract

Dittrichia graveolens (L.) GREUTER and Euphorbia prostrata AITON were reported for the first time from the territory of Slovakia. The first one was recorded near Kúty (W Slovakia) at the highway D2; its occurrence was already expected in view of its well-documented expansion along the roads of Austria and the Czech Republic. The second species grows in a city pavement in Banská Bystrica (Central Slovakia); as a notable very isolated population existing probably due to the urban heat island effect.
