Bromus carinatus, B. hordeaceus subsp. pseudothominei, Carduus acanthoides, Cynodon dactylon, Festuca arundinacea subsp. orientalis, Senecio vulgaris, Stellaria pallida and Tripleurospermum perforatum, are new to the flora of Ningxia. The spontaneous occurrence of Melilotus officinalis is reported for the first time from Ningxia.
