Abstract: In effective use of plant resources for human welfare has resulted in the loss of plant biodiversity worldwide. In parallel the number of endangered species has increased. The same developments have affected the flora of Uzbekistan, with the number of Red List plant species having almost doubled in the last 30 years from 163 to 1984 to 324 at present. Species from the genus Lagochilus belong to the most vulnerable plant species from the Lamiaceae family. Out of existing 13 Lagochilus species in the flora of Uzbekistan, four are included in the Red Book of the Republic of Uzbekistan Lagochilus vvedenskyi, L. olgae, L. proskorjakovii and L. inebrians (Red Book of Uzbekistan, 2009). On the basis of occurrence, these Red List plant species belong to category I (disappearing) and II (rare species). In addition, the natural distribution of other species from this genus, such as Lagochilus gypsaceus and Lagochilus acutilobus areal solimited across the country.
