ABSTRACT
Two new alien species, Bidens subalternans and B. connatus, have been recorded in the flora of Serbia. While B. subalternans is recorded in ruderal areas, B. connatus can be found among the nitrophilous vegetation of the wet habitats in the urban and suburban parts of the town of Niš, in East Serbia. Bidens subalternans is native to South America and B. connatus to North America, but on the territory of Serbia, as in the other parts of Europe, they show a potentially invasive character. Spreading of the above-mentioned species is discussed and supplemented by new distribution data, with a specific review of the European territory. The types of habitats are presented where the newly recorded species can be found in Serbia. A new key is provided for identification of all species of the genus Bidens registered on the territory of Serbia, together with the invasive representatives which are realistically expected to appear in Serbia in the near future. Furthermore, the differences between B. subalternans and B. bipinnatus, as well as between B. connatus and B. frondosus are reviewed on the basis of the fact that the latter are invasive taxa with which the newly recorded species show the greatest morphological similarity.
