For the first time for the flora of Uzbekistan is a species of adventive Duchesnea indica. This plant has recently been found in the surroundings of the city of Tashkent as a fugitive from the culture and the territory of the Bukhara oasis as an introduction. Based on the literature data and herbarium materials, we demonstrated that this plant has not been identified as a member for adventive flora of the region previously. Currently, D. indica in Tashkent is widespread and actively spreading. In the flora of Bukhara and its suburbs, D. indica originated as an adventive species under the influence of anthropogenic factors. This species is often found in buildings around the city, near the lawns and in flower beds. The place of origin of the D. indica is areas of South, Southeast and East Asia, with a mild and damp climate. Since the 19th century, is cultivated in Central Europe as an ornamental plant. In recent decades there has been a spontaneous and active dissemination of this species on every continent except Antarctica. Concerning the settling time is eukenophytes D. indica, according to the method of skidding – ergaziophytes, and on the degree of naturalization – epekophytes.
