ABSTRACT. Hepatic flora of Karelia includes 174 species of 67 genera and 30 families. 10 taxa are new for Karelia and 6 are new for continental part of Karelia. Each taxon is annotated by its distribution within 12 phytogeographic districts, and (if specimens were checked by author) also within squares of the "Atlas florae Europeae". The relatively high number of species could be explained by the great diversity in habitats.
