Up to 1972 Alchemilla subcrenata Buser was regarded as doubtfully indigenous in the Netherlands. In this year, however, the occurrence of the species was recorded with certainty from the northern part of this country, viz. from a meadow along the brooklet Rolderdiep belonging to the area of glacial river beds Drentsche A. The most striking morphological characteristics of A. subcrenata are described, a number of details are given with regard to the habitat of the new locality and the distribution of this northern species is briefly discussed.
