Abstract: A survey of four visits in Selmunett (Gzejjer ta' San Pawl) resulted in a number of new records comprising 23 lichens, 2 mosses and 20 higher plants. Five of these species are protected, amongst which Plocama calabrica is very rare whereas Parietaria cretica, a critical species only recorded from Selmunett in the Maltese islands, has been rediscovered after not being sighted for about 15 years and was suspected of having become extinct. Records resulting from this survey are compared with those from previous records or surveys between 1927 and 2012. These are examined critically, identifying possible misidenti cations as well as establishing their status, thus producing a final update of the florula of Selmunett.
