The taxa list is in acordance with the published paper Hurdu et al., 2012, Patterns of plant endemism in the Romanian Carpathians (South – Eastern Carpathians), Contrib. Bot., Cluj-Napoca, 47: 39-47 (see the list of publications for full-text). One taxon was exluded from the initial list due to recent taxonomical reconsiderations: Centaurea phrygia L ssp. melanocalathia (Borbás) Dostál (hybrid form)

The nomenclature was validated through the use of several works: Oprea (2005), Ciocârlan (2009), Dihoru & Negrean (2009) and Flora R.P.R.-R.S.R. vols I-XIII (1952 – 1976), as well as two online databases: Flora Europaea ( and The Plant List Database (

The pictures were taken using the following equipment:

2013 - 2014: Canon EOS 5d Mark 3 + Canon EF 100 mm f/2.8 L IS USM Macro Lens + Canon EF 17-40 mm f/4 L USM Lens

2008 - 2012: Canon EOS 400d + Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro Lens

2004 - 2008: Fujifilm Finepix S3500 Zoom
