New records of interesting and new grain-aliens in Northern Flanders and Northern France, especially in 1992. During 1992 cattle-fodder factories have been visited in the cities of Antwerp, Brugge, Deinze, Dunkerque, Ghent, Izegem, Roeselare and Zeebrugge. In the vicinity of the granaries a lot of grain-aliens of North American and mediterannean origin were observed. Among our records seven adventitious taxa are new for the Belgian flora: Amaranthus tamariscinus, A. tuberculatus, Brachiaria platyphylla, Cassia obtusifolia, Chloris pycnothrix, Emex australis and Euphorbia serpens. They are described briefly. Some others have only been found a few times in Belgium, viz, Amaranthus palmeri, A. standleyanus, A. viridis, Atriplex tatarica, Bidenspilosci, Echinochloa utilitis, Glycine max, Iva xanthiifolia, Medicago truncatula, Physalis angulata and Scorpiurus muricatus. Eleusine coracana, of doubtful status in Belgium, has been found again, The umbellifer Ammi majus has been found frequently in het past years; its actual Belgian distribution pattern is mapped. Bassia scoparia - hitherto thought to be mostly rare or absent in Belgium - seems to be much more frequent. It seems that the recent increase in the soyabean import from the Americas has considerably enriched the Belgian grain mill flora.
