During floristic research into the island of Bra~ (Dalmatia, Croatia) in 2010, Ammi visnaga (L.) Lam. (Apiaceae), a new neophyte for Croatia was found in several localities and natural habitats. At the altitude of 380–460 m above sea level, mostly in habitats disturbed by humans, the located populations were composed of numerous and vital specimens in blooms and with fruits. The gradual and successful integration of this species into the natural vegetation was noticed, particularly in grasslands of the association Brachypodio retuso-Trifolietum stellati Horvati} 1958 and macchia of the association Fraxino orno-Quercetum ilicis Horvati} (1956) 1958.
