Rubus scidularum Beek is described as a new species. Information is given on distribution, ecology, and differences with related species. A new name R. longior Beek is given to R. banningii typicus Focke, because the publication of the latter name is illegitimate. The var. incisus Beek of R. glandithyrsus Braun is raised to the rank of species and named R neerlandicus Beek. The publication by Weber (1978), in which he considers the continental form of R. incurvatus Bab as a separate species, is supported. This taxon named by Weber R. confusidens Weber, has however also been found in the British isles in Norfolk.
