The Sierra of Pachuca is the most widely explored and collected area in central Mexico and the rest of the country. Since the XX century, it has been visited by prominent European and North American naturalists who collected plants, specially at the mining districts of Pachuca, Real del Monte and El Chico. This information is a part of the floristic inventory of the phanerogams from the Sierra of Pachuca, which has contributed to the knowledge of the flora of the State of Hidalgo and therefore of the country.

The database contains 3 944 specimens pertaining to 93 families, 411 genera and 951 species of plants, and it pertains to the SNIB.
