ABSTRACT. The paper provides the brief sketch of the life of Father Urbian Faurie (1846–1915), the remarkable French missionary and botanist who made a great input to the understanding of bryophyte flora of Sakhalin at the primary stages of its exploration. The original specimens gathered by U. Faurie housed in KYO were re-studied. As a result, four species were newly identified from his collection, the records of two species not found in Sakhalin since the beginning of 20-th century (probably extinct in the current flora) were confirmed and an excluding of one species from the previously published lists was confirmed.
