Abstract
Anthemis samariensis is described as a new species, illustrated and compared with other taxa. This perennial chasmophyte belonging to the large A. cretica complex was discovered in 2007 on high-altitude cliffs in the Lefka Ori (White Mountains) of W Kriti (Crete). From the same area, two new localities are reported for the critically endangered Bupleurum kakiskalae (Apiaceae). IUCN Red List categories are discussed for both species. In addition, Alyssum lassiticum (Brassicaceae) is reported for the first time from the Lefka Ori.
