A revised checklist of the vascular plants of Navassa Island, a U.S. possession in the Caribbean, is presented. This is the first update since the original list was published by Ekman in 1929. A recent expedition to the island resulted in the addition of 35 taxa. Eight pteridophytes and 139 angiosperms are recorded from the island.
