Abstract: A total of 142 bryophyte taxa (17 liverworts and 125 mosses) was collected during a field trip led to Turkish Thrace in May of 2000. Seven species i.e. Bryum rubens, Didymodon sicculus, Fissidens polyphyllus, Fissidens serrulatus, Orthotrichum microcarpum, Seligeria paucifolia, Schistidium singarense are new records for Turkey. Most of the species collected are taxa of the temperate zone of Europe. A relatively high proportion (37%) of the species has subatlantic, sub-Mediterranean distribution; several Mediterranean elements (20 species mainly liverworts) and a few boreal, subboreal species (11 species) contribute to the diversity of the flora according to the collected material.
