Recent fieldwork and additional herbarium research on some critical Cyperaceae from Gran Canaria (Canary
Islands, Spain) revealed some interesting facts. Previous claims for the supposedly native species Cladium mariscus and Cyperus michelianus are, at least in part, erroneous and ascribable respectively to the non-native species C. jamaicense and C. pygmaeus. Kyllinga brevifolia is cited for the fi rst time from Gran Canaria as a locally established turf weed. Finally, the identity of Fimbristylis ferruginea in Gran Canaria is thoroughly discussed.
