Abstract: Altogether 17 peat moss species of 18 habitats of North Hungary were floristically investigated. Earlier and recently gained knowledge of species occurrences were compared and the conservation and threat status of species determined. The distribution of all species has changed, they have disappeared from locations and established in others. Sphagnum riparium is new for the studied area (and also for Hungary) while S. teres has disappeared. S. angustifolium, S. fallax, S. fimbriatum and S. palustre still have stable populations and presumably they will live in this area in the foreseeable future, in similar quantities. S. compaction, S. contortion, S. cuspidatum, S. quinquefarium, S. riparium and S. subsecundum have only few small populations and their survival is doubtful. The condition of mires is a very important factor for survival of local peat moss populations in the region.
