Up to five taxa of Kalanchoe (K. daigremontiana, K. tubiflora, K. fedtschenkoi, K. sexangularis and K. ×houghtonii) have been reported from several localities of Catalonia. However, we have recently noted that records of K. daigremontiana from Catalonia that have been revised were misidentifications and actually belong to the hybrid K. ×houghtonii, which its invasive potential is higher than those of the parental species. Based on a review of the current literature but also on new citations that are provided in the present work, we update the distribution of the taxa occurring in Catalonia, and we estimate the potential distribution of K. ×houghtonii using an ecological niche modelling approach. Finally, an identification key of Kalanchoe taxa occurring or cited in Catalonia is provided.
