The paper characterizes a group of rarer vascular plants discovered in the area of Lublin city. With the stations examined, all kinds of information collected about them were taken into account. The study took into consideration unpublished herbarium materials and the published ones from strictly definite stations as well as those without a specified location. With stations of this kind, only source information was given. The new plant stations included their exact description: location in the ATPOL grid squares 10 km x 10 km, site of occurrence in a specific part of Lublin, habitat conditions, and number of plant specimens. Altogether, the stations of 74 plants with the numerical majority of apophytes (50 species) over anthropophytes (24 species) were characterized. Out of these, 40 species had not been previously published from Lublin, while 9 others were given from few stations, either strictly specified or without a specified location in the ATPOL grid. Examples of these plants include Achillea pannonica, Alchemilla glaucescens, Asplenium ruta-muraria, Bidens connata, Carex buxbaumii, C. davalliana, in the former case, and Borago officinalis, Coronopus squamatus, Genista germanica, Geranium molle in the latter. Worth noting are the investigated plants that are totally or partly legal protected (9 species) and with a different degree of danger to their stations (22 species). These plants embrace for example: Centaurium erytrea ssp. erytrea, C. pulchellum, Dactylorhiza maculata, Epipactis hellborine, in the former case, and Androsace septentrionalis, Artemisia scoparia, Campanula latifolia, Carex davalliana, C. praecox, C. umbrosa in the latter. Moreover, four species can be classified as belonging to both these groups. They are: Dactylorhiza maculata, Dianthus armeria, Iris sibirica, Ornithogalum collinum.
