ABSTRACT. To determine bryophyte diversity of Ordu region, investigation materials were collected from 310 different localities between 1 October 2013 and 1 October 2015 in the study area. The taxonomic survey of Ordu yielded one species of Anthocerotophyta, 51 taxa of 25 families of Marchantiophyta and 365 taxa of 43 families of Bryophyta. Among these taxa, Thamnobryum coreanum (Cardot) Nog. & Z. Iwats. appears to be new to bryophyte Flora of Turkey. All taxa are new records for the Ordu Province.
