Abstract: Recent botanical collections by H. S. McKee and Douglas E. Yen,
together with the few available records from published papers, have been collated
into a checklist of the known vascular plants of the Horne and Wallis Islands. Of
248 species here listed, 170 appear to be indigenous. Many of these are widespread,
but 45 of them are limited to the Fijian Region (New Hebrides to Samoa) . Of the
four known endemic species, Elatostema yenii St. John and Peperomia futunaensis
St. John are herewith proposed as new, and a new combination in the fern genus
Thelypteris, by G. Brownlie, is included.
