New locality of Asplenium ruta-muraria in Lithuania [Nauja mūrinės kalnarūtės (Asplenium ruta-muraria) radavietė Lietuvoje]. – Botanica Lithuanica, 14(3): 151–154

New locality of Asplenium ruta-muraria in 2008 was recorded in Švėkšna village (Šilutė district, West Lithuania). Over 40 individuals were found in cracks of an old stone fence. Though all Asplenium species are protected in Lithuania, their native status in the country is not certain. It is concluded that A. trichomanes is native at least in one locality. A. ruta-muraria and A. viride should be ascribed to the group of cryptogenic species, i.e. species that are not demonstrably native or alien.
