ABSTRACT. The liverwort flora of the Jirisan National Park was studied and analyzed to create a list of taxa, that includes 177 species. Of these, 14 species are recorded only in literature and 78 species are newly recorded for the Jirisan Mountains. One species (Lopholejeunea subfusca) was excluded from the list because its occurrence in the Jirisan mountains is doubtful. The flora is characterized by the dominance of the East Asian temperate elements with great participation of northern boreal and subalpine taxa. The rather noticeable diversity of the flora is explained by a wide altitudinal range in the study area, which results in a high diversity of communities and habitat types.
