Abstract

Silene gallica L., an annual weed originally native to southern Europe to western Asia, was recently found to have been naturalized in the lowlands of northern Taiwan. It is easily distinguished from other Taiwanese congeners by having viscid-glandular pubescence and petals shallowly dentate or entire at the apex. A morphological description, line drawing, and photograph of this species are provided.
