They constitute about 5-7% of the total area proposed for expansion. Here there is a number of known locations of the Red Data Book species that are absent in the Park. They are Veronica fruticans which grows on cleavage of calcium rocks on mountain Chivchyn; Saxifraga androsacea – on cleavage of carbonate rocks on Chivchyn; Senecio Carpaticus – known location on mountain Chivchyn; B. matricariifolium – in Valley Preluky; Erigeron alpinus – on mountain Vasylkova (valley Preluky); Scopolia carniolica – in the valley of Black Cheremosh River up to village Burkut. In these areas – in the valley Preluky, the largest population of narrow local Eastern Carpathian endemic – Nigritella carpatica is growing.
