Abstract. Genus Primula L. (Primulaceae) is represented in Bulgaria by 8 species. The study is an observation of the whole recent collection of the genus, stored in the Herbarium of Agricultural University – Plovdiv (SOA). The collection consists of 352 herbarium sheets (185 of them from Bulgarian localities), representing 36 species (8 from Bulgaria). The chorological information from the literature and from the herbarium specimens is databased and mapped. Inspite of the relatively low representativeness, the Primula collection of SOA is an important resource for the taxonomical and chorological investigations in this group.
 
Key words: Primula, herbaria collection, SOA.
