Abstract

The moss flora of Pulau Pangkor consists of 59 species, two subspecies and 10 varieties in 28 genera and 13 families, which represent 12.7% of the 558 taxa, 17.7% of the 158 genera and 28.3% of the 46 families of mosses reported for Peninsular Malaysia. These 71 taxa made up 37.0% of the 192 taxa, 41.8% of the 67 genera and 43.3% of the 30 families of mosses found in Perak. Hyophila apiculata M. Fleisch. is a new record for Peninsular Malaysia, and six other taxa are reported for the first time for Perak viz. Bryum clavatum, Calymperes lonchophyllum subsp. beccarii, Fissidens firmus, Rhaphidostichum bunodicarpum, Trematodon longicollis and Trichosteleum stigmosum. Meanwhile, another 11 taxa namely Calymperes graeffeanum, C. moluccense, Ectropothecium buitenzorgii, Fissidens guangdongensis, Hyophila involuta, Isopterygium albescens var. albescens, Leucophanes glaucum, Mitthyridium papuanum, Papillidiopsis complanata, Taxithelium kerianum and Thuidium pristocalyx var. samoanum are new additions to the bryoflora of Pulau Pangkor. The largest family recorded was Calymperaceae with 28 taxa, followed by Fissidentaceae (10 taxa). Most of the mosses were found growing on soil bank, tree trunk and rock surface especially near the river in partial to fully shaded places.
