Abstract: Revision of specimens housed in the bryophyte collection of the Hungarian Natural History Museum, Budapest (BP) and recent collections of the fi rst author as well as of other bryologists enabled the establishment of the distribution of Tortella fasciculata (Culm.) Culm. and T. pseudofr agilis (Th ér.) Köckinger & Hedenäs in Hungary, two recently described segregates of the obsolete name T. bambergeri auct. eur. non (Schimp.) Broth. T. fasciculata proved to be widespread in the country, occurring in 14 geographic regions: Aggtelek Karst, Bükk Mts, Börzsöny Mts, Visegrád Mts, Pilis Mts, Buda Mts, Gerecse Mts, Vértes Mts, Bakony Mts, Balaton Uplands, Keszthely Mts, Kőszeg Mts, Mecsek Mts, and Geresdi dombság. It grows on average at an elevation of 402 ± 33.2 m a. s. l. (mean ± standard error). T. pseudofr agilis, on the other hand, is restricted to 4 regions: Aggtelek Karst, Bükk Mts, Pilis Mts, and Bakony Mts, and grows at signifi cantly higher elevations of 647 ± 47.5 m a.s.l. Distribution maps, a key for Hungarian Tortella species, and an illustration of the most important microscopic feature for the discrimination of the two segregates are also presented.
