Abstract Dioscorea communis, hitherto known as Tamus communis, black bryony, is a temperate Eurasian species here recorded as adventive from Wellington, New Zealand. The family Dioscoreaceae is otherwise only known from a few other species of Dioscorea that are occasionally cultivated, this having very probably been so since pre‐European times.
