Abstract: A floristic survey of plant diversity was carried out to record and analyse the current status of the different herbaceous dicot species of flowering plants (Angiosperms) in bishnupur sub–division of bankura district, West Bengal, India during the year 2014. All together 6 quadrats were laid down, and 24 dicot plant species were documented. The specimens were preserved in the form of herbarium. Frequency and density varied greatly among the taxa, while many species were not evenly abundant in the study area. Out of total species, 10 species were used as medicinal plants by the local people. There are also some alien invasive species of diverse origin.
