ACANTHACEAE. Manual family contributor Lucinda McDade (PH) reports that Ruellia matagalpae Lindau, until now believed to range from Mexico to Nicaragua, can be added to the Costa Rican flora on the basis of three specimens (R. Espinoza 151; D. García 54; R. Villalobos 78) from the Cordillera de Guanacaste and vicinity.

PRIMULACEAE. The minute and probably overlooked Anagallis minima (L.) E. H. L. Krause, most likely cosmopolitan but sporadically collected (e.g., United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Great Britain), has never been attributed to Costa Rica. Now it can be, as vouched by Hammel et al. 22910, from 2200 m elevation near Cerro Caraigres. A second Costa Rican collection, Khan et al. 547 (det. A. R. Vickery, 1990), has lately appeared in TROPICOS, with no specific locality indicated.
