Abstract 
During investigations into four regions of Montenegro (Rumija Mts, Lovcen Mts, the coastal area around Kotor, Durmitor National Park) and one of Serbia (Stara Planina Mts) carried out in 2003-2005, 28 bryophyte taxa new to Montenegro and 22 new to Serbia were collected. Two of these, Cynodontium gracilescens and Pohlia nutans subsp. schimperi, are new to the Balkan peninsula and four additional species were not known to occur in the whole territory of former Yugoslavia: Encalypta microstoma, Grimmia dissimulata, G. torquata and Orthotrichum urnigerum. An annotated catalogue of the new records is presented, including notes on substrates and associated bryophytes. Bryogeographic relations are discussed with reference to some ecological characteristics of the regions investigated.

Key words
Musci, Hepaticae, Balkan peninsula, bryoflora, bryophyte ecology, bryogeography.
