The objective of this study was to discuss the characteristics of the moss flora of Mt. Deogyu located on the border of the Jeonbuk and Kyungnam provinces in Korea. A total of 21 field surveys were carried out at various sites in the mountain area from August 2007 to September 2008. All the collected materials were processed into voucher specimens and were currently deposited in the herbarium at Chonbuk National University (JNU). In this study, we collected and identified 158 moss taxa, which included 156 species, 1 subsp. and 1 var. of 96 genera and 37 families. Unconfirmed taxa in this study, but previously recorded, belonged to 25 taxa, which included 13 families, 19 genera and 25 species. In addition, 183 taxa were found on Mt. Dreogyu, which belonged to 37 families, 101 genera, 1 subsp. and 1 var. The habitat of each collection was examined and the classification system of Ignatov et al. (2006) was used. New vernacular names of 6 families and 11 genera were then determined. Six species, formerly thought be only in North Korea, were shown to be present on Mt. Deogyu, which included Bucklandiella laeta, Anomobryum filiforme var. concinnatum, Herzogiella turfacea, Brachythecium rutabulum, Eurhynchium angustirete and Campylidium hispidulum.
