Abstract: All available specimens of Grimmia and Coscinodon collected in Hungary and kept in BP together with the collections of the author (B) were revised, in total more than 1,400 specimens. The following 20 species were found to occur in Hungary: Coscinodon cribrosus, Grimmia anodon, G. crinita, G. decipiens, G. dissimulata, G. elatior, G. funalis, G. hartmanii, G. laevigata, G. lisae, G. longirostris, G. montana, G. muehlenbeckii, G. orbicularis, G. ovalis, G. plagiopodia, G. pulvinata, G. teretinervis, G. tergestina, G. trichophylla. Descriptions, illustrations, distribution maps and a key are provided. Re-identification of specimens during revision is analysed with respect to the frequency of errors. The incidence of sporophytes and of mixed stands and mixed gatherings is given and evaluated. Some ecological, bryogeographical and conservational issues are briefly discussed.
