Pages: 51-76.

Abstract: During a field trip carried out in 2010 in the Voras Mts 244 bryophyte taxa (53 liverworts and 191 mosses) were collected on the Greek side of the mountain and 95 taxa (24 liverworts and 71 mosses) on adjacent sites on the territory of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Six hepatics (Calypogeia azurea, Cephaloziella rubella, Diplophyllum obtusifolium, Lophozia longidens, L. wenzelii, Tritomaria quinquedentata) and 14 mosses (Bryum tenuisetum, Ditrichum heteromallum, Grimmia incurva, G. sessitana, Plagiothecium platyphyllum, Pohlia camptotrachela, Pseudoleskea patens, Racomitrium affine, R. sudeticum, Rhabdoweisia fugax, Sphagnum fallax, S. papillosum, S. subnitens, Tortella bambergeri) represent new records for the bryophyte flora of Greece, while 9 hepatics (Diplophyllum obtusifolium, Lophocolea heterophylla, Lophozia incisa, L. longidens, L. wenzelii, Marsupella sphacelata, Riccia beyrichiana, R. subbifurca, Scapania praetervisa) and 3 mosses (Grimmia anomala, G. muehlenbeckii, Pseudoleskea patens) are recorded for the first time in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. From the aspect of plant conservation it is worth mentioning the five species documented in these mountains, which are included in the Red data book of European bryophytes, namely Brachythecium geheebi, Buxbaumia viridis, rimmia caespiticia, G. sessitana, and Pseudoleskea saviana.
