Abstract

In this study, the bryophyte flora of Erciyes Mountain was investigated. In total, 244 taxa were found in this area. Of these, 9 families, 9 genera, and 11 taxa belong to liverworts and 25 families, 72 genera, and 233 taxa belong to mosses. According to Henderson's grid-square system, 138 bryophyte taxa for the B8 square are new records. Among them, Leiocolea heterocolpos (Thed. ex Hartm.) H.Buch., Scapania obscura (Arn. & Jens.) Schiffn., Schistidium pulchrum H.H.Blom., Tortula lingulata Lindb., Bryum knowltonii Barnes, and Brachythecium capillaceum (F.Weber & D.Mohr) Giacom are new records for the bryophyte flora of Turkey. Polytrichastrum sexangulare (Brid.) G.L.Sm.; Dicranum fulvum Hook.; Gymnostomum lanceolatum M.J.Cano, Ros & J.Guerra; Tortula systylia (Schimp.) Lindb.; Pohlia obtusifolia (Vill. ex Brid.) L.F.Koch.; and Drepanocladus polygamus (Schimp.) Hedenäs are second records for Turkey.
