  • Anna Oldén

Abstract

This study reports the bryophyte flora of Lågskär, an isolated lighthouse island in the Åland province of Finland. A total of 81 bryophyte species were found on Lågskär, including 74 moss species and seven liverwort species. Syntrichia ruraliformis is reported for the first time in Finland, whereas Ceratodon conicus was believed to be extinct in Finland and Brachythecium turgidum was considered regionally extinct from southern Finland.
