The paper provides a list of published post-Miocene flora found in the territory of former Yugoslavia, presenting Pliocene, Pleistocene and sub-recent paleoflora from Serbia, North Macedonia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Montenegro. The author has listed all the localities and papers she has been able to access. Most of these paleofloras had been researched and published by Pavle Ivanovič Černjavski, formerly a curator of the Natural History Museum in Belgrade. Consequently, a large number of paleofloras discussed in this paper is still kept at this Museum.

Keywords: Pliocene, Pleistocene, paleobotany, Yugoslavia, Serbia, North Macedonia

A total of 990 records of selected vascular plants, fungi, amphibians and reptiles from biological collections of the Natural History Museum in Belgrade was reporter for Serbia. They include 34 representatives of Polypodiopsida, 32 of Pinopsida, 560 of Magnoliopsida, 127 of Pezizomycetes, 28 of Agaricomycetes, 16 of Amphibia and 13 of Reptilia. The databases contains 86 species of vascular plants, 24 species of fungi, 13 species of amphibians and 8 species of reptiles which are protected and strictly protected in Serbia.

In this article is presented the second part of data on selected new and noteworthy taxa for a flora of Serbia resulting from the ongoing process of examination and revision of the Herbarium collection of the Institute for Nature Conservation of the Vojvodina province (PZZP). These data are including 22 species, 14 subspecies, 1 variety, 1 form, 1 infraspecific taxon with indetermined taxonomical status [stat. indet.] and one nothospecies belonging to 11 genera (Leontodon L., Lepidium L., Leucanthemella Tzvelev, Leucanthemum Mill., Leucojum Mill., Limonium Mill., Limosella L., Linaria Mill., Lindernia All., Linum L. and Scorzoneroides Moench). One subspecies (Linum capitatum subsp. serrulatum), one nothospecies (Linaria ×oligotricha) and 3 taxa on the different infraspecific levels are new for a flora of Serbia.

Data related to the 41 species of the dragonfly fauna of central and southwestern Republic of North Macedonia and nearby Albania, gathered during the post European Congress on Odonatology 2012 fieldtrip on July 6-13th, 2012 are presented. The Ohrid – Prespa region was particularly investigated. The majority of previous data available for this area is old and outdated. Additionally, recent degradation of habitats, combined with sporadic records of some patrimonial species made new surveys necessary. The presence of Gomphus schneiderii Selys, 1850 and S. flavomaculata in the region was confirmed whereas L. pectoralis was not found again. Conversely, Coenagrion scitulum (Rambur, 1842) was observed in Albania for the first time. The national Odonata checklists contain now 63 species in Republic of North Macedonia and 59 in Albania.

This paper includes a list of 62 species of Heteroptera (Nepomorpha and Gerromorpha), categorized into 12 families: Nepidae (2), Belostomatidae (1), Corixidae (25), Naucoridae (1), Aphelocheiridae (1), Notonectidae (6), Pleidae (1), Mesoveliidae (1), Hebridae (3), Hydrometridae (2), Velidae (9) and Gerridae (10). Two species are new for the fauna of Serbia: Hesperocorixa moesta (Fieber, 1848) and Velia (Plesiovelia) mancinii mancinii Tamanini, 1947.

Distribution of three Vipera species in the Republic of Serbia

Appendices. Vipera.xls

In the most recent comprehensive distribution of vipers in the western and central Balkans, 210 precise records (146 UTM cells) for all three species of vipers (Vipera ammodytes, V. berus, and V. ursinii) were presented for Serbia. During the past eight years, extensive field investigations within the ongoing conservation projects in our country (e.g. Ecological Networks and Natura 2000), significantly increased the number of faunistic records, which urged the need for publishing the updated distribution of all three species of vipers in Serbia. We collected a total of 770 records of vipers in Serbia, of which literature data constitute 49.4% (n = 380) and unpublished field data made as much as 50.6% (n = 390) of the records. As expected, V. ammodytes was the best-represented species, accounting for 614 records (79.8%), followed by V. berus with 145 records (18.8%), and V. ursinii with 11 records (1.4%). Results of the present study showed that in our country there are three areas crucially important for the diversity of vipers, with all three species present: Koritnik Mt. and Žljeb Mt. in Metohija, as well as Mokra Gora Mt. in south-western Serbia. We also found 25 10×10 km UTM squares with sympatry of two species of vipers. The designation of areas of special importance for vipers (e.g. Mokra Gora Mt., Dukat Mt., Besna kobila Mt., Kamena Gora Mt.) should be one of the priority actions for improvement of their conservation statuses in our country.
