The present study is aimed at enlisting the under -explored moss diversity of Mt. Abu, and understand the distribution of epiphytic mosses of this region. Diversity is comparatively rich at Mt. Abu due to high rainfall and high humidity. Twenty epiphytic mosses have been collected from various localities growing on different phorophytes. The study revealed that Mt. Abu has a great variety of bryophytes and is a 'hot spot' for them. It is a hill resort located at 72o 53' to 72o 75' East and 24o 31' to 24o 60' North with the total area of about 22 kms. X 1-8 kms.
Key words: Diversity, Epiphytic mosses, Mt. Abu, Rajasthan.
