This paper presents 630 specific and infraspecific taxa of the vascular flora of the National Park Schinias-Marathon, Sterea Ellas. For each taxon, local distribution and habitat types are presented. Morphological, chorological and ecological comments are included. Emphasis is given to the status of alien taxa. Euphorbia serpens is reported for the first time from the Greek mainland. Eclipta prostrata is the first record for the phytogeographical region of Sterea Ellas. Some of the new records concern interesting taxa from the chorological, ecological and/or taxonomical point of view, such as Allium chamaespathum, Anthemis werneri, Cirsium arvense, Cerastium glutinosum, Silene spinescens, Trifolium echinatum, Trifolium squamosum, Trigonella corniculata subsp. rechingeri and Orobanche litorea. The chorological analysis demonstrates the pronounced Mediterranean character of the area’s flora.
