The annotated checklist of 376 vascular plant species in the flora of the Nature Monument “Gora Vaida” is given. The species Botrychium virginianum, Euphrasia aff. brevipila, Hierochloë kamtschatica, and Poa sergievskajae were found for the first time in the flora of Sakhalin. The new records for the Mt. Vaida and its vicinity are Asplenium ruta-muraria, Allium ochotense, Carex melanocarpa, Poa radula, Corydalis ambigua, Salix hastata, Saxifraga rebunshirensis etc. Nature Monument “Gora Vaida” is of great interest from a botanical point of view, as the enclave of biodiversity, where both northern and southern species of Far East flora are concentrated. Along with other protected natural territories of Sakhalin, it plays an important role in the preservation of rare species of insular flora and rare plant communities.
