We document the naturalization of Clibadium surinamense (Asteraceae), a Neotropical aspecies indigenous to the Caribbean Basin, in central Taiwan. A taxonomic treatment, line drawings, and color photographs of this species from the wild are provided to aid in identification. This represents the first confirmed report of both the genus and species in Taiwan.
