Özet

Fissidens fontanus and F. osmundoides (Fissidentaceae, Bryopsida) are recorded for the first time in Turkey. The former was collected from Dortyol (Hatay Province) in the Amanos Mountains and the latter from Adana - Gulek Gate (Gulek Bogazi). The nearest locality to Turkey for F. fontanus is Israel, while F osmundoides is known nearby in Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, the Caucasus region, and Iran. There are now 22 species of Fissidens present in Turkey.
