Sramkó Gábor – Hűvös-Récsi Annamária
On 21st September 2001 the authors discovered a new occurence of Seseli hippomarathrum Jacq. at Lãzãrea (Gyergyószárhegy; Romania, Harghita county), at the western slopes of hill Szármány, around the Castle Lázár. The geographical coordinates measured by GPS device .Etrex Legend. withan accuracy of 5 meters are: N 46° 44’ 59,6’’; E 25° 31’ 47,3’’.A few hundred of individuals were detected around the castle. The plants grew on calcareous soil in an abandoned opencast mine and the surrounding calcareus slopes. Some plants can also be found near the cemetery. The vegetation is represented with a coenological relevé (see tab. 2.).
Although, the species was described from several localities in the country, mainly from Transsylvania (see tab. 1. and abb. 1.), now it is only reported from a single site in Neamþ county (Moldva) next to Dumbrava Roºie settlement (CIOCÂRLAN (2000: 481.) and S. BÃDÃRÃU ex litt.). Therefore the newly described occurence at Lãzãrea is the second confirmed locality of the species now in Romania.
A herbarial specimen is deposited at the Herbarium of the Debrecen University (DE).
