When we the catalogue was made, critical comments for several taxa were carried out, specially from a chorological point of view, emphasizing the interest phytogeographical of a lot findings and making distribution maps when there were enough data and the interest of the taxa was advisable. At the same time several nomencatural, morphological, of taxonomical treatment, ecological aspects are commented on some difficult taxa. The first record of Inula bifrons for the Iberian Península stands out among the chorological findings.
