ABSTRACT. In August 2015, we studied mosses in East Mongolia Region and collected 154 moss samples from Mt. Matad (1240 m a.s.l.) and Mt. Shiliyn Bogd (1770 m a.s.l.). As a result, 62 species from 38 genera and 24 families were identified in these samples, including 42 species new for the East Mongolia Region, where 70 moss species are now known.
