ABSTRACT. Moss flora of Salnye Tundry mountains (area I in Fig. 1) and of adjacent lowland (II – environs of Pusozero, III – environs of Vuva) was studied. 213 species from 85 genera and 29 familis were found. The list of mosses is annotated by frequency, occurrence in different vegetation belts (forest: below 300-350 m alt.; subalpine, represented by open birch forests below 400-450 m alt., alpine, i. e. mountain tundra – above 450-500 m alt.), frequently accompanying moss species, categories of Red Data Book of Murmansk Region for protected species (as number after “KKM”). For species collected from 1-2 points a full label of every localities is given. Comparison with other areas of Kola Peninsula and distribution of some species are discussed.
