Title: The checklist of Hungarian bryophytes – second update.
Year: 2020
Volume: 51
Pages: 11-76.


Abstract: According to the checklist presented here, the bryophyte flora of Hungary consists of 2 species in 2 genera and 2 families of hornworts, 146 species and 3 additional infraspecific taxa (1 subspecies and 2 varieties) in 60 genera and 34 families of liverworts, and 521 species and 17 additional infraspecific taxa (5 subspecies and 12 varieties) in 186 genera and 64 families of mosses, in total 669 species, 6 subspecies and 14 varieties or 689 taxa. During the last decade, 40 bryophyte taxa (6 liverworts and 34 mosses) were added to the Hungarian bryophyte flora (Appendix 1.1), and an additional 19 taxa (4 liverworts and 15 mosses) that were already part of the Hungarian flora but not recognised in the previous checklist, are now incorporated in the list (Appendix 1.2). On the other hand, 29 taxa (7 liverworts and 22 mosses) must be excluded according to our present state of knowledge (Appendix 2). Another 13 taxa (2 liverworts and 11 mosses) that are at present not considered members of the Hungarian bryoflora are annotated in Appendix 3. They were not recognised in the previous checklist (with one exception), but are reported from Hungary in some literature and with five exceptions are also recognised in the European checklist. In many cases we have insufficient information to definitely decide upon their status. Annotations to all taxa listed in the three appendices provide additional information. In Appendix 4 to all names of bryophyte taxa that appeared in the previous checklist (except excluded taxa) the presently accepted names are assigned.
