Abstract

The species Ludwigia peploides - the floating water primrose, one of the species listed as IAS of EU concern (Regulation EU No 1143/2014) has been recorded for the first time in Croatian flora. It was recorded at the end of August 2018 on the Ilova River near the village of Kaniška Iva (Moslavina, Croatia) where it forms dense floating mats. Its presence was observed along a length of the river of about 2 km. With this finding there are now six plant species listed as invasive alien species of Union concern present in Croatia.
