This paper presents some data on chorology of five rare and vulnerable cormophytes from Argeş County discovered in 2017 during field investigations as follows: Arnica montana L., Limodorum abortivum (L.) Sw., Anacamptis pyramidalis (L.) Rich., Anacamptis coriophora (L.) R. M. Bateman, Pridgeon & M. W. Chase, Orchis militaris L. These species were characterized taking into account: natural habitats, sozological category, their distribution in Argeş County, floristic inventory of their habitat. The main pressures and threats which threaten their survival are: illegal deforestation, storage of waste, overgrazing, harvesting for scientific collection or decorative purposes. The conservation measures necessary for their long-term conservation include: monitoring of discovered populations, control of the touristic activities, monitoring of grazing and forestry activities, reintroduction in natural habitats of new plants obtained using in vitro micropropagation.
