ABSTRACT. An annotated list of new or interesting species of hepatics of the Sayan Mountains is presented. It includes 43 taxa new for Sayan, 25 of which are new for South Siberia, and Diplophyllum obtusatum is new for Eurasia. A number of species are reported as much more common in Sayan than it was known previously. The peculiarities of distribution of phytogeographically interesting species are discussed. The new combinations are suggested for ten species of the genus Schistochilopsis (Kitag.) Konst., comb. nov. (= Lophozia subgen. Schistochilopsis Kitag., Massularia Schljak., nom. illeg.) and for Cephaloziella arctogena (Schust.) Konst., comb. nov. (Cephaloziella rubella subsp. arctogena (Schust.) Schust. & Damsh.).
