ABSTRACT. Research on mosses in the Bogdkhan National Park has revealed that there are 163 species of mosses from 85 generas and 33 families, equal to 42.8% of all mosses in the mountainous regions (Khangai, Khentei and Mongolian Altai Ranges) of Mongolia. These amount to 60.6 % of overall mosses of the Khentei mountain range. The research also discovered some rare and interesting species for moss flora in Mongolia: Polytrichum commune var. perigoniale, P. jensenii, Bryum alpinum, Dichelyma falcatum, Rhabdoweisia kusenevae, Anomodon minor, Weissia platyphylla, and Cephalocladium enerve.
