Oxytropis glabra (Lam.) DC. (Papilionaceae) and Carex pycnostachya Kar. & Kir. (Cyperaceae) are reported as new records for the flora of Iran. These species occur in wetland habitats sharply embedded in steppic vegetation in the Alborz Mts., N Iran. A morphological comparison between these new records and related species is presented. Habitat features of each species are described. Newly found localities for these 2 species in Iran indicate westward extension of the distribution of these species.
