47 wild species have been registered, included in 43 genus and 27 families. The higher species number were found in Poaceae (7), Cyperaceae (4) and Asteraceae (4). We reported 7 wilds species as new records for the wetland: Alternanthera pubiflora, Alternanthera halimifolia, Limnobium laevigatum, Colocasia esculenta, Rumex obtusifolius, Elodea potamogeton, Plantago major. Also we found 11 cultivated species in the wetland. The results show a decrease in species richness compared with previous studies, mainly of aquatic species. Similarity analysis with previous studies indicates a change in the composition of the flora in time.
