Sixty-four species are newly reported from the Republic of Congo. The occurrence of seven species reported without specimen citation by Sita & Moutsamboté (1988), and which constitute important range extensions, is also confirmed and documented. The vascular flora of the Republic of Congo now includes about 4538 species, fifteen of which are endemic. Its diversity nearly compares with that of neighbouring Gabon (4710 species), which, however, has a much higher number of endemics (508 species).
