The subfamily Racomitrioideae of the Grimmiaceae is represented in Hungary by seven species belonging to four genera, including Bucklandiella affinis (F. Weber & D. Mohr) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra, B. heterosticha (Hedw.) Bednarek- Ochyra & Ochyra, B. microcarpa (Hedw.) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra, Codriophorus aciculare (Hedw.) P. Beauv., C. aquaticus (Brid.) Brid., Racomitrium lanuginosum (Hedw.) Brid. and Niphotrichum canescens (Hedw.) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra. All species are briefly described and illustrated and their distribution in Hungary is mapped. A key for determination of genera and species is provided. Some ecological, bryogeographical and conservation questions related to particular species are discussed. The following new statuses and combinations are proposed: Codriophorus P. Beauv. sect. Hydrophilus (Bednarek-Ochyra) Bednarek- Ochyra & Ochyra, stat. et comb. nov., Codriophorus sect. Depressi (Bednarek-Ochyra) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra, stat. et comb. nov., and Codriophorus sect. Andicola (Bednarek-Ochyra) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra, stat. et comb. nov.
During field trips made in 2007 and 2008 to the Bjelasica Mts, 318 bryophyte taxa (84 liverworts and 234 mosses) were collected. Twenty three taxa are reported here for the first time for Montenegro. Eight of the species recorded are redlisted in Europe.
- The present paper is a contribution to the knowledge of the distribution of the moss species Buxbaumia viridis in Montenegro. The records are from 14 known sites at elevations over 1300 m a.s.l. in the northern and north-eastern parts of the country. Population size is remarkable in Durmitor National Park at Crno jezero lake, where sporophytes can be found on ca 50 tree trunks.
